This paper describes and illustrates Pestalotiopsis oudhensis sp. nov.and Domingoella indopiptadiana as new to Indian mycoflora. The Foliicolous Fungi causes huge losses every year in different parts of the world. The fungal pathogens producing leaf spots infect a large variety of hosts including most of the crops, forests and other plants.
Body elongate, dorsal margin elevated and the ventral margin nearly horizontal and dorsal fin origin anterior to the pelvic fin origin. Dorsal fin inserted slightly nearer to snout tip than to base of caudal fin. Distance between pelvic fin insertions to anal fin origin is equal to the distance between the pectoral fin insertions to pelvic fin insertion.
Markhamia zanzibarica, a small, tropical tree with striking flowers and decorative fruits, is reported for the first time in India, together with Vitex peduncularis, Xylosma longifolia, Cassia multijuga and Kigelia africana from Forest Research Institute, Dehradun. The specific epithet zanzibarica is given for Zanzibar, the island lying 36 km. off the Tanzanian coast in the Indian Ocean.
Morphometric and meristic characters of L. savala of Ratnagiri coast have been studied and the relationships of morphometric characters with standard length were established. The fishes ranged between 250-700 mm. in total length
This paper describes and illustrates Alternaria banyan sp. nov., Asterina benghalensis sp. nov., and Drechslera fici sp. nov. as new to Indian mycoflora from Shrawasti, (U.P.) India.
This is the first report on extended distribution of C. razianum K.G.Bhat in the Western Ghats region of Karnataka. The floristic composition the area (Charmady Ghat region) in which Combretum razianum is growing was carried out. The regeneration of this species was found to be very poor.
