Soil-washing technique was used for the isolation of microfungi from soil of a planted Norway spruce forest in the south of Sweden. About ninety different fungal species were identified. The most frequently isolated genera were Mortierella, Penicillium, and Trickoderma which together constituted 71% of the total number of isolates. A significant (P < 0·01) difference in abundance between the different soil horizons was found for twenty-three species. The results are discussed in relation to earlier mycological studies in coniferous forest soils.
