ABSTRACT : Studies on the diversity of indigenous fungi were conducted in the central districts of South Korea from 2008 to 2013. During the studies, potentially unrecorded agarics were collected. All specimens collected in this study were examined morphologically and phylogenetic analysis was also performed. They were identified as Galerina sideroides and Gymnopus luxurians. These fungi have never been reported in South Korea. We report them here with detailed descriptions and figures.
