Endophytic fungi were isolated from leaves of five different therapeutically important hydrophytes. A total of 46 endophytic fungal species were present and their crude extracts were tested for the production of alkaloid, flavonoid, terpenoid, tannin and steroid. All the endophytic fungi produced alkaloid in culture. Flavonoid was produced by 44 endophytic fungi and terpenoid produced by 39 species of endophytic fungi. Twenty five endophytic fungi produced tannin and 24 endophytic fungi produced steroid in culture. Further, out of the 46 endophytic fungi 23 endophytic fungi (Almost 50%) produce all the five chemical groups tested. Chrysosporium sp and sterile form III produced only alkaloids in culture.
