Abstract: A total of 42 species of wood-inhabiting fungi (mostly Aphyllophorales) were collected in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in the vicinity of the town of Tiksi, which is situated in treeless tundra. All species grew on timber. The most common species proved to be Dacryobolus sudans (Alb. & Schwein. : Fr.) Fr., Hyphoderma praetermissum (P. Karst.) J. Erikss. & A. Strid, H. setigerum (Fr.) Donk, Peniophora incarnata (Pers. :Fr.) P. Karst., Stereum sanguinolentum (Alb. & Schwein. :Fr.) Fr. and Trametes ochracea (Pers.) Gilb. & Ryvarden. Athelia pyriformis (M.P. Christ.) Jülich, Subulicium lautum (H.S. Jacks.) Hjortstam & Ryvarden and Syzygospora mycophaga (M.P. Christ.) Hauerslev are reported from Russia for the first time and some microscopical details of them are given. The dispersal ability and the probable dispersal routes of the species are briefly discussed.
