In order to support with current information the conservation and management program for Barranca del Cupatitzio National Park, Michoacan, Mexico, all available biological inventories were updated and verified, including macromycetes. To achieve this goal feld work was carried out thus obtaining an up to date species list with data about their presence, distribution and conservation status. Priority species for conservation were identified. Fungi were collected weekly during the rainy seasons of 2003 and 2004 in eight permanent sampling plots. Ten species of Ascomicetes that belong to seven genera and six families were registered as well as 73 species of Basidiomicetes that belong to 43 genera and 27 families. 52 species were ectomycorrhizal fungi, from which 37 are edible, 22 toxic and two endangered. The best represented families were Russulaceae, with two genera and ten species, Tricholomataceae, with six genera and nine species, Amanitaceae, with one genus and eight species, and Boletaceae with three genera and seven species. Russula emetica, R. foetens, R. cyanoxanta, Amanita virosa, Laccaria laccata, Suillus granulatus and S. cothurnatus were the most frequent species. Finally, after following the criteria of conservation status, 19 macrofungi with conservation priority in the park were identifed.
