Contribution to the Checklist of Basidiomycota for the Republic of North Macedonia
Basidiomycota is a species-rich group of fungi that was intensively studied in Republic of North Macedo-nia. In a recently published checklist 1766 macrofungal taxa of this group are noted as known for its ter-ritory. The research on diversity and ecology of different groups of fungi in various biogeographical re-gions is ongoing work. Additionally, the studies of hypogeous fungi were intensified during the last years. These surveys resulted in discovery of 23 taxa of Basidiomycota (13 epigeous and 10 hypogeous species) recorded for the first time in the Republic of North Macedonia.
