Abstract

Mushroom is a macrofungus that is large enough to be seen without the use of magnification, has a distinct fruiting body that can be either epigeous or hypogeous and can be harvested. Macrofungi are found in almost every ecosystems and their types differ accordingly. There are ten main categories into which macrofungi are divided namely Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes, Zygomycetes, Lichens, Slime Moulds, Rusts, Smuts, Chytrids, and Myxomycetes. Studies on the taxonomy and diversity of macrofungal species are becoming more and more crucial since many macrofungal species are becoming extinct or are in danger of falling extinct due to habitat loss.
Using the opportunistic sampling technique, a survey was carried out between July 2018 and December 2021 in various places (forests, secondary forests, agricultural fields, bush fallows, and farmers' pathways) in five districts of south Gujarat. The fungi were gathered, documented, and preserved. With the aid of the existing literature, they were further recognized morphologically and taxonomically abbreviated. In this article, the documentation of fungus in the south Gujarat area is discussed.
