Results of a preliminary study of keratinophilic fungi from soils collected from a variety of sites in hilly areas of Himachal Pradesh, India, are reported. A total of 122 soil samples were examined, of which 101 samples were positive for keratinophilic fungi and related dermatophytes. Eleven species of five genera were isolated viz. Chrysosporium indicum (11 %), C. keratinophilum (4 %), C. queenslandicum (25 %), C. tropicum (19 %), Chrysosporium sp. (2 %), C. xerophilum (2 %), Chrysosporium state of Ctenomyces serratus (2 %), Malbranchea gypsea (7 %), Microsporum canis (2 %), Microsporum gypseum complex (9 %) and Trichophyton mentagrophytes (1 %).
