The present paper includes Hymenochaetaceous macrofungi Phellinus phomaceus from melghat forest Maharashtra, India. Author collected many interesting and rare macrofungi out of which Phellinus phomaceus selected here for further studies. Morphotaxonomy of the macrofungi studied. Extraction of primary and secondary metabolites for the biochemical analysis carried out and antimicrobial potential also investigated. The mycelium, gills and stipe extracted and used for antimicrobial test carried out by Klebsiella pneumonia, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus. The study results that Phellinus phomaceus showed antimicrobial activities.
