Four different species of Trametes were collected during a field survey in Malakand district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Based on morphological characteristics and the molecular data from internal transcribed spacer rDNA and large subunit nLSU, the species were identified as T. elegans, T. gibbosa, T. hirsuta and T. trogii. A literature review confirms T. elegans, T. gibbosa and T. hirsuta species to be the first records from Pakistan and comparison with herbarium specie confirms its identity.
