Abstract: The Index Fungorum (maintained by the Index Fungorum Partnership) is the global nomenclatural database for fungi (Fungi, chromistan fungi, protozoan fungi) and contains over 380,000 names at the rank of species and below. Some names in this database comprise the Species Fungorum component from CABI Bioservices and are identified as the correct name for a taxon or as a synonym. The names of about 34,000 species (plus 65,000 synonyms) of mainly economically important fungi in groups that are not yet covered globally in other GSDs are included. Species Fungorum aspires to be a global checklist of the fungi and provides links to sources of additional information (descriptions, illustrations, on-line identification systems) where these are available.
