Abstract:

Macro-fungi (Mushrooms) considered a great potential natural bio-resource of basidiomycetes; also, source of proteins and vitamins for human. In the present study twelve mushrooms were identified and one of Terfezia sp. The importance of mushroom all over the world, give a push to many mycologists to study the wonderful macro-fungi. The different ecological conditions, affects on the wild fungus especially humidity and temperature degrees. The morphological characteristics as the stalk height, diameter, cap size and fresh weight of mushrooms were considered as a parameter for differentiation between different types. Twelve species of mushrooms belonging to different  genera were collected and identified from three locations in Jazan  governorate southern of Saudi Arabia; Harub, Al-Aridhah and Samtah, which found a suitable area for this kind of macro fungi in Saudi Arabia.
