Fungal Diversity in Culture collections (FungalDC)

This paper presents the database that contains 24563 fungal species from culture collections around the world, 18814 names of fungal species/variants from GenBank and 16843 genera from 10th Edition of the Dictionary of Fungi, 2008. The database will be under constant change due to the fact that its underlying data sources are constantly updated. A special format was developed to: (a) perform real-time tracking to which extent diverse fungal groups have been studied by molecular methods, and (b) identify type material of a particular species among the specimens studied. Each species name in the database is listed using the orthography of Index Fungorum. For each species name, the corresponding higher rank taxa are indicated, according to data from AFTOL (CABI). The database is available to any interested user at the websites of VKM and MycoBank.
