Abstract: Different kinds of tropical vegetations and evergreen broad-leafed forests are distributed over the vast region of southern China, in which there occur abundant fungi. Nearly 1200 genera and over 5000 species of higher fungi, including Ascomycota and Basidiomycota, have been reported from the region. Based on reliable records and own experiences of the authors, tropical affinities of the higher fungi there were analysed.
