The mycoflora from the bed of river Krishna at Sangli was studied at three different locations viz., Right Bank, Center and Left Bank from January 2014 to December 2015. Twenty six soil samples were collected from surface, 10, 15, and 25 cm depth. The mycoflora were isolated by using soil dilution and soil plate method. Out of the 75 strains of fungi isolated 10 species of Penicillium viz., Penicillium funiculosum (32.66) and P. semitectum (03.88%), P. expensum (2.33%), P. chrysogenum (16.33%), P. Lilacinum (09.63%), P.notatum (15.66%), P. roseum (1.62%), P. tardum (23.67%), P. citrinum (09.66%) and P. rubrum (2.67%). were identified. Greater number of species were isolated on soil plate technique as compared to dilution plate technique. Higher number of species were obtained from right bank as compared to left bank and very low frequency were obtained from centre.
