Abstract: At the present time the most suitable method for long-term preservation of fungus cultures is the storage in liquid nitrogen at -196 °C. The maintenance of fungus cultures by cryogenic freezing technique eliminates the risk of traditional methods and prevents genetic damage of the material preserved in living state. The authors report about the establishing of the culture collections of macrofungi at the Department of Botany of the Hungarian Natural History Museum. These culture collections serve as depository for several species of floristical and economical importance (163 taxa, 315 isolates).
