The Mount Juwang was designated as a national park in 1976 because of its unique bedrock geology. Although Juwang National Park has maintained its natural ecosystem well, few macrofungal surveys have been carried out. As a part of a project supported by the National Institute of Biological Resources (NIBR) for the discovery of indigenous fungal species, we surveyed the mushrooms in Juwang National Park from 2018 to 2019. The macrofungi were identified based on morphological and molecular analyses. Among these fungi, five specimens were identified as species previously unrecorded in Korea: Calocybe decolorata, Crepidotus brunnescens, Mycena pearsoniana, Psathyrella phegophila, and P. sulcatotuberculosa. Three of these species are known to be rare in the world: Crepidotus brunnescens, P. phegophila, and P. sulcatotuberculosa. In this study, we provide detailed morphological descriptions of the five unrecorded species from Mt. Juwang in Korea.
