The mycological collection at the Senckenberg Museum of Natural History Görlitz (Fungarium; GLM-F) is part of the Herbarium Senckenbergianum. The collection has its origin in the historical collection of the ‘Naturforschende Gesellschaft der Oberlausitz’, which, however, was lost to a large extent during the first half of the 20th century in consequence of war. Beginning in 1974, a systematic re-establishment of a mycological collection was initiated by the curator Ingrid Dunger, with the strong support of Ch. Stark, Görlitz and G. Zschieschang, Herrnhut.
