The purpose of this research is identifying areas of distribution of clinically important fungi in Vietnam. As a result of a mycological analysis of 150 soil samples from the provinces of northern and southern Vietnam, 75 morphological types of colonies were isolated. The identified species were assigned to three divisions - Zygomycota, Mucormycota Ascomycota, with a quantitative predominance of the latter. The taxonomic structure of the Zygomycota division is represented by one genera Absidia and Mucormycota represented by one genera Mucor. In the Ascomycota division, the orders Eurotiales (3 genera) and Hypocreales (2 genera) are prevalent. The orders Pleosporales, Chaetothyriales, Microascales, Onygenales are represented by single genera. The largest number of species belongs to the genera of Aspergillus (34%) and Penicillium (19%).
