|Abstract: ||Abstract:Diversity of lignicolous marine fungi is well-documented in the tropical, subtropical and temperate areas, while that in the arctic region is not well-understood. During a short visit to Troms?e (69°40'N 18°56'E) and Longyearbyen (Svalbard) (78°13'N, 15°33'E) in Norway, fifty-one pieces of washed-up wood were collected at the shore to give a preliminary account of the diversity of wood-inhabiting marine fungi. Colonisation frequency was low as only 21 pieces of wood were colonised by marine fungi. Ascomycetes predominated on the wood and typical marine fungi of the temperate region, including Ceriosporopsis tubulifera and Lautosporopsis circumvestita, were collected at Troms?e. These fungi are common on timbers collected in the British Isles and Denmark. Sablecola chinensis, a species reported only in the southeast Asia, was also found. A different assemblage of marine fungi was recorded at Longyearbyen, where at least two new taxa were found including Havispora longyearbyenensis gen. et sp. nov. and Remispora longyearbyenensis sp. nov. A physiological study of H. longyearbyenensis is underway to determine if this fungus is active in cold environment and thus to deduce its ecological roles in these climates.|
