Abstract:

Between the years 2016 – 2017, a survey on macrofungi was carried out in Al - Alam and Tikrit provinces from Tikrit district in Salahadin governorate / north central Iraq. It has been found that the two provinces comprise high diversity of macrofungi. In this paper 7 basidiomycetous macrofungal species belonging to 7 genera, 6 families and 3 orders were identified. These species are Coprinellus disseminatus, Ganoderma lucidum, Lichenomphalia umbellifera, Montagnea arenaria, Phellinus pomaceus, Podaxis pistillaris and Trametes trogii. All these fungi are described for the first time from Salahadin Governorate. Out of the seven species, G. lucidum, L. umbellifera, M. arenaria and P. pomaceus are new addition for the macromycota of Iraq. C. disseminatus and L. umbellifera are reported rare in the study area.
