Abstract

Three fungi and one lichen have been collected repeatedly from a salt marsh-estuarine environment at Ipswich, Massachusetts. Common hosts for Rhizophidium sphaerocarpum were Vaucheria intermedia and Ulothrix spp. The ubiquitous Pleospora herbarum was collected solely from the sea milkwort, Glaux maritima, while Leptosphaeria orae-maris was prevalent in the marsh grasses, Spartina patens and S. alterniflora var. glabra. The lichen, Lecanora chlarotera, encrusted the leeward surfaces of wood pilings in the marsh supralittoral. Vegetative and reproductive material of this mycological flora was most abundant during the winter and early spring months.
