The year 2005 marked the 100th Anniversary of the National Collection of Fungi (NCF), now part of the Biosystematics Division of the Plant Protection Research Institute, Agricultural Research Council of South Africa. In effect, this was also the 100th Anniversary of mycology in southern Africa. 

When mycologists and plant pathologists mainly from Africa but including a good number of colleagues from other parts of the world were confronted with the impressive history of mycology in southern Africa, is was plainly obvious that something needed to be done to commemorate this proud occasion. It was decided to launch a special issue of the Studies in Mycology dedicated to the anniversary of mycology in South Africa.

The present volume contains 20 papers in which 101 new entities are introduced (including 1 family, 10 genera, 37 species, 1 forma and 52 new combinations). As can be seen in the paper dealing /with species numbers from South Africa, it is estimated that more than 200 000 species of fungi can be found in South Africa (Crous et al. 2006 – this volume), of which a large portion will prove to be unique.
