Abstract: A checklist of macrofungi was compiled for Indiana as part of a larger effort to document fungi within the state. Our study compiled records of Indiana fungi from digitized specimen data available online through the Mycology Collections data Portal (http://mycoportal.org). These data were supplemented with records from the scientific literature. While several small checklists of Indiana fungi exist, the majority of these being published previously in the Proceeding of the Indiana Academy of Science, our study represents the first to comprehensively compile all the available data on Indiana fungi. Overall, more than 19,000 records of Indiana fungi were examined, with 1410 species of macrofungi being documented in this publication. These species represent 24 fungal orders from two major phyla, with 757 species in this checklist being reported in the literature for the first time here. Our study also recovered records documenting other groups of Indiana fungi, such as microfungi, which will be covered in subsequent publications.
