ABSTRACT
The mycoflora of any habitat varies with host type, environmental condition and relation among them. The present study deals with the isolation of fungal species from leaf surface mycoflora of Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Dalchini). Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum that is used in both sweet and savoury foods. A total of 24 species were isolated among which Deuteromycotina were dominant (16 species), followed by Ascomycotina (2 species), Zygomycotina (4 species) and mycelia sterilia (2 species). Aspergillus species, Penicillium species, Rhizopus species, Fusarium species were common in the season. The growth of fungi was dominant during rainy and winter season and less in summer season.
