Diversity and similarity of macrofungi of Sierra de Quila, Jalisco, México were analized in three different kinds of vegetation. Fungal diversity in the area is high. The pine-oak and cloud forests, were more diverse in their community structure than the oak forest. Similarity among the three kinds of vegetation was low, there are few species share among them; pine-oak and cloud forests show higher affinity than oak forests. This pattern of similarity is a general condition for others regions with environmental conditions similar to Sierra de Quila.
