is a website dedicated to the taxonomy and classification of the phylum Basidiomycota. The website focuses on three primary goals.

  1. To provide an up-to-date outline of Basidiomycota.
  2. To provide notes on orders, families and genera of Basidiomycota.
  3. To provide updated accounts of each genus keeping abreast of the current literature. The website will also provide a list of references dealing with Basidiomycota.  


Highlights of Information

  • Provide illustrations and plates of genera of Basidiomycota

We hope that all mycologists will contribute to this web page over time and it will provide a complete one stop shop where details of fungal genera and species, molecular data as well as their roles, biosecurity issues, economic significance and industrial relevance can be sourced.

The website is updated periodically and will publish an outline as well as order, family and genera accounts. Previously published orders will be updated as new information comes to light.
