Twenty species of Pestolotiopsis were isolated from different hosts and screened for the production of an anticancer drug taxol. Taxol production was confirmed in all the 20 fungi by ultra violet (UV) spectroscopic analysis, and Infra-red Spectrum analysis (IR). The taxol produced by the fungi was compared with that of standard taxol. The taxol from the selected fungi were identical with authentic taxol.
