Present communication deals with the taxonomic studies on woody and fleshy poroid macrofungi of the Koderma wildlife sanctuary, Jharkhand, which were carried out during 2010–2017. This was the first and systematic approach to survey and collection of macrofungi from this protected area. In this period more than 400 samples of macrofungi from Koderma wildlife sanctuary were collected and studied. Thorough macro- and micro-morphological examination of these collections revealed 88 species belonging to 44 genera and 12 families. The result of present study is discussed in the present communication. A provisional key to genera for all the collected genera is also provided to ease the identification.
