The fungal collection consists of c. 41 000 specimens from the Nordic countries (mainly southern Sweden) and 22 000 specimens from the rest of the world.
The ongoing survey of fungi in the province of Skåne produces a considerable amount of new collections each year from more than twenty collectors. The Swedish species information centre has already registered the accessions of threatened species. The collections are also used by The Swedish taxonomy initiative and in the work on a checklist of Swedish fungi.
The type material will be registered in the general database.
