The pea seed mycoflora in Himachal Pradesh, India was studied using blotter and agar plate techniques. Seeds were incubated for 7 days at 10, 20 and 25°C. The agar plate technique was efficient in identifying fungi in seeds. A total of 22 fungi was associated with pea seeds, among which Gliocladium virens, Cladosporium cladosporioides, C. herbarum, Rhizopus stolonifer, Pythium ultimum and Absidia cylindrospora were new to India.
