Abstract

Coltriciella dependens a new record of wood rotting fungi is being reported on partially burnt bark of living Pinus kesiya from Meghalaya, India.  It is the first record of the genus Coltriciella as well.  Macro-microscopical features, photographs, distribution patterns and ecology are discussed.
