Four collections from four sites yielded 112 higher marine fungirepresenting 79 ascomycetes, 3 basidiomycetes, 30 anamorphic fungi, while others await further identification. Average percentageoccurrence of fungi recorded ranged from 0.05-11.3%. Species diversity, richness, and evenness were greatest atSite IV, Ao Tok, Koh Taen. The most frequently encountered taxa for all sites (>10%) were Corollospora maritima andLindra thallasiae. Lindra thallasiae and Swampomyces aegyptiacus were recorded for the first time in Thailand.
