Examination of driftwood and landed phanerogamic debris found loose on sea shores along the western coast of Libya, yielded (20 species ) of marine fungi: Ascomycetes (16) and Hyphomycetes (4). Of these (5) species were reported for the first time in Libya. Brief descriptions of the recorded species are presented.
