The paper presents an update list of hypogeous fungi observed in Liguria (Italy) during the last three years. The list also includes the species recorded by several mycologists in early 20th century. The species collected were geographically mapped by means of a GIS; the habitats where the fungi were found are described in detail. As concerns Ligurian mycoflora, 10 new taxa were observed, among these two species are very rare and interesting: Alpova rubescens and Rhizopogon rocabrunae.
