Fungi developing on dung samples, from a wide range of locations and incubated in moist chambers, were recorded. Highly significant differences were found among the mycobiota of different dung types, from different latitudinal ranges, and collected at different seasons. Sheep, cattle, deer, rabbit, hare and grouse provided 86% of the 425 samples.
Although mostly microscopic, dung fungi include some of the most spectacular members of their kingdom. There are some amazing zygomycetes, especially Pilobolus, the hat-thrower, which aims and shoots its sporangia up to 2 metres toward the light. There are keys to all the other groups of dung fungi (Richardson & Watling, 1968, 1969), but until now there has been no compilation devoted to the coprophilous conidial fungi. Hyphomycetes are common on the dung of most animals, and why they are not mentioned in the majority of papers is not clear. Nematodes and nematode-trapping fungi are common on dung, and by consulting the book The Nematode-Destroying Fungi (Barron, 1977), a student can gain some first-hand experience with this unique group.
