The in vitro antifungal activity of solvent extracts of Coleus forskohlii, Coleus blumei and Coleus barbatus were compared by testing against some pathogenic fungi like Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus  fumigatus, Aspergillus ruantii, Proteus vulgaris  and Candida albicans . The petroleum ether extract of Coleus forskohlii  and Coleus barbatus  exhibited significant antifungal activity against all the selected organisms. The extracts of Coleus blumei  did not show any significant antifungal activity against the selected organisms.
