ABSTRACT A survey of, the mycoflora of three seed lots of Pinus caribaea var. hondurensis was carried out using the incubation tests for the detection of seed-borne fungi on agricultural seeds. The seed-borne fungi identified were: t Acromonium sp., Aspergillus flatus, fumigatus,! A. niger, A. tamarii, Botrvtis sp., BotryQdiplQd.i.a theobromae, Chaetomium funicola, £. globosum, £. indiCUTO, Cladosporium oxvsporum, Pendrophpma sp., Fysa.riym ecruiseti, F. moniliforme var. intermedium, Gii-pcladium ! "; ‘ . t roseum. Macrophoma spp., Mucac' spp., p^ecj-lomycas variotii, Penicillium gitrjnypi, £. cyciQPiym , Pestalotiopsis spp., Phialophora fastigiata. EhamoESis. occulta., Rhizopus sp. and Trichoderma sp. Seed-debris (pieces of cones and twigs) and stones also carried a large proportion of these pathogenic and saprophytic fungi. Using scanning electron microscope, no propagules of obligate parasitic pathogens were seen on the seed coat but spores and mycelia of some facultative pathogens were observed. Most of the seed-borne fungi were carried externally on the testa.
