Abstract:

Present study was done in North-Eastern part of Uttar Pradesh (India) which is home to diverse form of macrofungal species, some of which are highly edible and generally used by local peoples as food and other medicinal purpose. Species composition and species diversity of macrofungi were examined in 7 Tehsils of Gorakhpur district. The fruiting bodies of macrofungi were collected between 2014-2016 during different seasons, but maximum occurrence of macrofungi was found in rainy season. During extensive field survey 30 macrofungal samples were collected and identified which belonging to 23 genera and 16 families on the basis of their morphological and microscopic study. These macrofungi were observed in humid, calcareous, sandy soil and on wood log, wood, leaf litter, leaf heaps, troops of rotten wood, decaying wood log as well as on termite nests. The collected macrofungi were well photographed, preserved in dry as well as in wet condition for the further study. Present study indicates that the variation in climatic condition of Gorakhpur made it possible for the prosperity and unevenness of macrofungi in this area.
