Abstract: The monumental research work of Margit Babos among others includes the discovery of 12 new macrofungi taxa and 9 new combinations from the current area of Hungary, mostly from the sandy areas and the sawdust depots of the country. She completed the macrofungi records of both the Hortobágy and Kiskunság National Parks, as well as the Szentendre Island, and reported at first time on the occurrence of numerous species known so far only from distant sea coast areas. She was pioneering in the study of the macrofungi that appear in sawdust depots of lumber mills. She was an internationally recognised expert of the genera Lepiota s.l. and Inocybe. She published 77 scientific and 14 popular articles, and participated in the preparation of five mycological books. She has given 31 scientific and 409 popular and educational presentations.
