Fungi

Subdivisions in 20 groups following historical lines: Myxomycota, Chytridiomycota, Oomycota, Zygomycota/Endogonales, Protomycetales/Taphrinales, Gymnoascales, Erysiphales, Laboulbeniales, Pyrenomycetes, inoperculate discomycetes, operculate discomycetes, Tuberales, mitosporic fungi, lichenicolous fungi, smut fungi, Uredinales, Heterobasidiomycetes, Poriales/Cantharellales/Polyporales, Agaricales/Boletales/Russulales, Gasteromycetidae.

Within the groups, the genera and subgeneric taxa are arranged alphabetically. Types and exsiccatae are included. A card system for localizing the genera is available.
