Over the past few years, efforts have been made to compile a current list of British Columbia's macrofungi species. In this report, we list 3009 species of macrofungi, 90% of which are represented by specimens in either of British Columbia's fungal herbaria-the Forest Pathology Herbarium at the Pacific Forestry Centre, or the University of British Columbia Herbarium Fungal Collection. Because exploration of the province for macrofungi is ongoing and research is continuing to clarify the identity of species thought to occur here, this list is not yet complete. Periodic updating of the list is therefore warranted.
