Abstract

The species diversity of the family Russulaceae was studied at four representative sites located in forests dominated by Pinus sylvestris on sandy soils in the Záhorská nížina lowland in the years 2010–2012. The diversity varies from 7 to 10 species per site. There is a high variation in species composition and frequency rates between the studied sites. At all four sites, members of two Russulaceae genera were represented: Lactarius with two recorded species in total, while Russula with 19 species.The species diversity of Russulaceae in the area of Záhorská nížina is estimated based on data from the representative sites, revision of herbarium material, and published data. Nineteen species were identified in the studied herbarium material, and together with the data from the representative sites this amounts to a total of 27 Lactarius and Russula species associated with Pinus and reported from the area. Published reports on the occurrence of three more species of these two genera, reported to be associated with pine trees in the area, have not been confirmed.
