Abstract: During the 2006–2008 summer–autumn seasons, the myxomycete biodiversity was investigated in Gomolsha Forests National Nature Park and neighbouring territories of the East Forest-Steppe area of Ukraine. Several earlier collections (2002-2004) were also reexamined. Four species found appeared to be new for Ukraine, six others were estimated as rare for the country. Descriptions, microphotographs, localities and information on substrata are presented for these species.
