Abstract: The bacteria involved in an outdoor single phase composting using sawdust and wheat bran as substrates for cultivation of Pleurotus tuber-regium   (Fr.) Singer, and Lentinus squarrosulus   (Berk.), two Nigerian edible mushrooms were identified. Composting was carried out for 2 weeks. The highest core and peripheral temperatures were 68 and 48°C, respectively, while the lowest temperature was 32°C. The highest number of bacteria in the core and peripheral compost were 1.46 x 106 and 6.90 x 105 cfu/ml, respectively. Bacteria isolated and characterized from the fermenting agricultural substrates include Bacillus polymyxa   , Enterobacter aerogenes   , Micrococcus roseus   , Citrobacter freundii   , Bacillus subtilis   , Clostridium perfringens   , Bacillus licheniformis   , Pseudomonas aeruginosa   , Bacillus cereus   and Escherichia coli   . The implication of the presence of these bacteria is discussed.
