Abstract:  This paper summarizes the polypores (Basidiomycota) recorded during the investigations made by the author in 1993- 1999 in northeastern China. The study is based on ca. 2500 specimens collected, but additional data was obtained from the critical reexamination of the previously collected herbarium material. Altogether 261 polypore species were recorded from the study area and are listed here. Fifteen species are new to China. In addition, nine species found in the Russian Far East are included. The checklist provides a taxonomically sound basis for future studies on poroid woodinhabiting fungi in the area. Taxonomy of some noteworthy species is outlined, and the following new combinations are proposed: Inocutis levis (P. Karst.) Y.C. Dai, Inonotopsis exilispora (Y.C. Dai & Niemelä) Y.C. Dai, and Trichaptum polycystidiatum (Pilát) Y.C. Dai.
