SwissFungi is the national data and information centre for the documentation and conservation of the Swiss fungi flora. It is part of the Swiss information centre for species (InfoSpecies).
The aim of SwissFungi is to provide knowledge about the distribution, red list status and ecology of all fungi known for Switzerland (without the lichenized species of Switzerland - see Data Centre SwissLichens). The database hosted by SwissFungi serves as a basis for assessing the conservation status (e.g. red lists, priority species) of all fungal species known in Switzerland and provides important information on the occurrence of threatened species to the authorities. The distribution data from the database are presented for all species with an accuracy of 5x5 km in the publicly accessible distribution atlas. Our substrate list summarizes which saprophytic and parasitic fungal species are found on which plant genus.
