Abstract: Gathot is a traditional fermented dried cassava originated from East and Central Java Indonesia, which is characterized by the black colour of inside and outside part of the tuber. The black colour has been related to fungi growing in the tuber during the fermentation process. The aim of this study was to isolate and identify fungi from gathot produced according to the method applied in Central Java. The peeled cassava tubers were washed and let to stand on the roof (exposed to rainwater and sunshine) for approximately 1 month, until the tubers were dry and black. Direct isolation method was performed when isolating fungi from gathot, in which gathot was ground into flour and placed on potato dextrose agar (PDA) medium. Macroscopic and microscopic identification of fungi was then performed. Based on the mycological characteristics, filamentous fungi Acremonium charticola and Rhizopus oryzae were the two species of fungi isolated from gathot made in Central Java Indonesia.
