Tests conducted on developing peanut fruits showed that 84 % of the pegs contained fungi before they entered the ground. Shell invasion remained high (90–100 %) throughout the season; seed invasion rose to 82 %, declining at harvest time.Penicillium, Fusarium andPhoma were the most common shell fungi;Penicillium andGliocladium were most common in seeds. Ecologically, peanut fungi fall into 3 groups: an aerial flora, a terrestrial flora and species which colonize peanut fruits both above and below ground
