Lake of Telaga Warna situated in highland area of Bogor represents a lake with a mild sorrounding environment. Consequently, the aquatic biodiversity structure of the lake may differ conspicously with that of the the lowland lake. Hence, Lake of Telaga Warna may also contain a high biodiversity. The objective of this research was to determine the biodiversity of aquatic microfungi in the highland lake of Telaga Warna, and to collect the aquatic microfungi of the highand lake of Telaga Warna. During dry season it was collected 11 microfungi. During rainy season it was collected 15 microfungi. As much as 24 species of aquatic microfungi were found in Telaga Warna lake.
