Argentina is located in southern South America, between 21° and 55° S and 53° and 73° W, covering 3.7 million of km2. Due to the large size of the country, Argentina has a vast variety of climates; from humid tropical forests (such as the Yungas and Paranaense forests), xerophytic forests (Chaco, Espinal), grasslands (Pampa), deserts (Puna, Patagonian steppe, Monte), to cold and humid habitats (Patagonian Andean forest) (Burkart et al. 1999, Brown et al. 2006, Niveiro and Albertó 2012a). Cabrera (1994) divides Argentina into 11 phytogeographic provinces, which belong to 4 Domains and 2 Regions. An extended list of vegetation types presented in each phytogeographic province can also be consulted in Cabrera ́s book (op. cit.). In previous papers, partial checklists of the Argentinean Agaricales were presented for the families Amanitaceae, Pluteaceae, and Hygrophoraceae (Niveiro and Albertó 2012a); Coprinaceae and Strophariaceae (Niveiro and Albertó 2012b); Bolbitaceae and Crepidotaceae (Niveiro and Albertó 2012c); Tricholomataceae (Niveiro and Albertó 2012d); Agaricaceae (Niveiro and Albertó 2013a); and Paxillaceae, Gomphidiaceae, Boletaceae, and Russulaceae (Niveiro and Albertó 2013b). The list of species for Cortinariaceae and Entolomataceae of Argentina is presented in this work. The Cortinariaceae was studied by Moser and Horak (1975), Horak (1980), Moser (2001), Singer and Digilio (1952), Singer (1954, 1969), and Spegazzini (1988). The Entolomataceae was mainly studied by Singer and Digilio (1952), Singer (1969), and Horak (1976, 1978, 1980, 1982, 1983). The purpose of this study is to establish a baseline of knowledge about the diversity of species described for the families Cortinariaceae and Entolomataceae in Argentina, as a base for future studies of mushroom diversity.
