The component composition and content of mycotoxins in perennial legumes of the genera Lathyrus (L. pratensis L., L. vernus (L.) Bernh., L. sylvestris L., L. niger (L.) Bernh., L. japonicus Willd., L. palustris L.) and Vicia (V. cracca L., V. sepium L., V. sylvatica L.) selected from natural biocenoses were studied. The greatest intensity of accumulation and diversity of fungal metabolites were found in meadow peavine, and the lowest intensity was in the peas. The general features and interspecific peculiarities of the mycotoxin profile in the plants of the genera Lathyrus and Vicia, as well as its variability in meadow peavine and cow vetch within different periods of vegetation, are discussed.
