A total of 118 fungal specimens were collected from Mt. Manggyeong, Chungnam province, Korea between July and October 2014. All specimens were identified to the species level using a combination of morphological characteristics and DNA sequencing. Out of 118 specimens, eight species, Amanita manginiana, A. pilosella, Calvatia holothurioides, Cantharellus tabernensis, Dicephalospora rufocornea, Gymnopus menehune, Marasmius brunneospermus, and Russula cerolens, have not been previously reported in Korea.
