This study aimed to obtain information on the types of fungi isolated from stem-forming agarwood Aquilaria spp that successful collection of Microbiology Laboratory of Forestry Research in Bogor. Identification was done by observing morphological features from cultured isolates on PDA and BLA. The results of identification of isolates collection
include species of Fusarium solani (Mart.), Appell and Walenw, F. tricinctum (corda) Sacc, F sambucinum Fuckel, and F. Moniliformae.
