A reference checklist has been compiled giving the names of all species of non-lichenized fungi described by collection, observation or culture from the general Antarctic region since records were first published in 1847. The list gives the current names and taxonomic dispositions of over 1000 reported fungi (c. 750 species), together with links to bibliographic references for each report. Additional data include some details on the collection or isolation, and some limited information on associated organisms and substrates. The list is maintained online via the Antarctic F Environmental Data Centre at: www.antarctica.ac.uk/bas research/data/access/fungi/. The list is updated on a regular basis.
