Fungi are an important role in litter decomposition process, because most of them able to decompose lignocelluloses in the litter. Fungal colonization on leaf litter of Acacia mangium was observed on shaded and unshaded places to study pattern of fungal colonization in the Acacias forest floor. Samples were taking by quadrate method. Fungal colonization was observing by removed surface of litter layer on 1x1 m2 area and then observed them and measured each of fungal colony  used metal rule. The result showed that there are different sizes of fungal colonies in both shaded and unshaded places. Colonies size at shaded place were 40 to 100 cm while at unshaded place were 25 to 50 cm. Fungal mycelium in each colonies not only distribute on the litter layers surface but also distribute into the bottom of litter layers.
