A mycological survey was carried out with the soil samples collected in Korea from Sptember, 1978 to December, 1979. Special attention was paid fungus genus Penicillum. One hundred twenty three isolates, as a result, were obtained from the Korean soils. Among these, sixteen species were iedentified and described in this paper. Almost all of the fungi reported here are new to Korea. One of them is an asomycete cleisothecia of $120~50\mu$ in diameter. Ascospores of this fungus were found lenticular with an equatorial furrow as indicated in the previous descriptions.
