TERRIQUEZ VILLANUEVA, Ana Karla; HERRERA FONSECA, María de Jesús  and  RODRIGUEZ ALCANTAR, Olivia. Contribution to the knowledge of the mycobiota of Punta Grande hill, Mezcala, municipality of Poncitlán, Jalisco, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Mic [online]. 2017, vol.45, pp.53-66. ISSN 0187-3180.


Punta Grande mountain is located in the municipality of Poncitlán, in the Ciénega region of the state of Jalisco, which represents the highest summit within this zone. There are three plant communities that are distinguished in this study area: deciduous tropical forest, Pinus forest and Quercus forest.


To contribute to the knowledge of the mycobiota of this region, which is mostly tropical, and which is scarcely explored in Jalisco and the rest of the country. A total of 382 specimens were collected mainly during the rainy season of 2008 and 2009.

Results and conclusions:

49% of specimens were determined to correspond to 111 taxa, of which 104 are Basidiomycota and seven Ascomycota. Of these 56 taxa that were collected in Quercus forest, 37 in Pinus forest and 28 in tropical forest, being the first type of vegetation with the highest number of species determined. Twelve new taxa are registered for the Mycobiota of Jalisco, including Resupinatus applicatus, which represents the first genus for the state.

Keywords : Ascomycota; Basidiomycota; taxa.
