LOPEZ-GUZMAN, Luis Miguel; CHACON, Santiago  and  BAUTISTA-GALVEZ, Arely. Additions to the knowledge on the diversity of fungi (macromycetes) from Chiapas, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Mic [online]. 2017, vol.45, pp.27-35. ISSN 0187-3180.


There are in Chiapas some studies on the fungi of the region of the Altos, Centro and Soconusco, however, in the State there are still extensive unexplored territories.


The objective of this paper was to increase the knowledge about the fungi (macromycetes) diversity from the state of Chiapas, Mexico.


Random collections (2014-2015) were carried out in five Ch'ol communities in the municipality of Salto de Agua, Chiapas. The study of samples was made using routine techniques in mycology, while the species determination was done using specialized literature.

Results and conclusions:

A check-list of 32 species is presented (six Ascomycota and 28 Basidiomycota). Hygrocybe subminutula is recorded for the first time for mycobiota of Mexico, while Clavulinopsis corniculata is a new record for the state. Complete descriptions of the new records are presented, as well as some illustrations of the most representative species. For a better knowledge of the Mycobiota of Chiapas, it is necessary to increase the explorations to the sites visited as well as to other localities of the State.

Keywords : Mycobiota; New records; Salto de Agua.
