Abstract

This investigation explored the diversity of higher fungi with their identification, documentation and utilization. The study area covered 549 ha, which lies within a narrow limit of altitude between 165 and 200 masl, in tropical deciduous riverine forest. Amanita chepangiana, A. pantherina, Macrolepiota fuliginosa, M. rhacodes, Russula emetica, R. foetens, R. nigricans, Scleroderma citrinum, S, bovista, Termitomyces clypeatus and T. eurhizeus were found to be dominant. The collected samples represented 29 species of Basidiomycetes belonging to 7 orders, 18 families and 25 genera. The dried specimens housed at Tribhuvan University Central Herbarium (TUCH), Kirtipur, Kathmandu. The mycoelements prevailing in this area need sustainable conservation and utilization.
