In this research, 12 species of Agaric Fungi including, Agaricus arvensis, A. bisporus, Coprinus comatus,
C. sterquilinus
, Lentinus tigrinus, Inocybe griseovelata, I. subnudipes, I. terrifera, Leucoagaricus carneifolius,
L. leucothites
, Volvariella volvacea,and Volvupluteus gloiocephalus belonging to Agaricaceae, Inocybaceae, Pluteacae, and Polyporaceae were identified from Kermanshah and Harsin region in Kermanshah province (W Iran). Four species viz. I. griseovelata, I. subnudipes, I. terrifer, and L. carneifolius are new for Iranian mycobiota.
