      The mycoflora colonizing the litter ofAtlantia monophylla Corr. andGymnosporia emarginata Laws. was analysed at monthly intervals during a one-year period. The fungi were grouped as ‘dominant’, ‘common’, ‘frequent’, ‘occasional’ and ‘rare’ depending on their percentage frequency. Only a few fungi appeared to be ‘dominant’ on each plant species and nearly half the number of species recorded occurred sporadically. Each plant had its own characteristic ‘dominant’ mycoflora which included mostly host specific forms. Many species were found to be common to both plant species, but the frequency and percentage occurrence of these species was different on both litter types.
