Abstract: The Nanling Mountain region of South China is very rich in macrofungal resources, and also is the largest oasis near 25 degrees north latitude. The macrofungal diversity in the Nanling Mountains was introduced in this paper. 37 species originally described from the type localities in the Nanling were listed, including the Latin name, Chinese name, habitat and distribution; some misidentification or questionable species were annotated; the dominant families or genera, floristic elements, resource protection and sustainable utilization in the Nanling Mountains were analyzed. Strengthening the researches and protection of macrofungal diversity in the Nanling Mountains is greatly important not only for scientific significance, but also for ecosystem stability, regional environmental safety and future industrial development.

Key words: the Nanling Mountains, macrofungal diversiy, flora, resource utilization
