Abstract

An annotated checklist of the smut fungi (Ustilaginomycetes) from Thailand has been compiled after an examination of the scientific literature, previously deposited herbarium specimens and specimens collected by the authors during a survey in December 2005. Fifty-two species of smut fungi are listed, including 11 species which were newly discovered during our survey. Most of these smut fungi are reported for the first time from Thailand. Several species are very rare, being known only from the type material or a limited number of collections.
