The study was based on three basidiomycetous macroycete samples, collected from Trabzon and Erzincan provinces between 2013-2014, and aims to make a contribution to the mycomycota of Turkey by adding new records. The ecological characteristics of the fruit bodies were recorded and macro photographs of them were taken at their natural habitats. Then they were transferred to the fungarium and necessary investigations were carried out. By comparing the obtained macroscopic and microscopic measuremental data with those in literature, they were identified as Agaricus smithii Kerrigan, Coprinopsis goudensis (Ulje) Redhead, Vilgalys & Moncalvo and Suillus tomentosus Singer. Tracing the current literature on macrofungi of Turkey, it is found that they were not reported from Turkey before. The taxa are described briefly and required data about their, habitat, ecology and geographical positions are provided together with macromorphological photographs and line drawings related to their micromorphologies.
