Central highlands of Vietnam is rich fungal diversity but there are few study on ethnomycology. In addition, extensive utilization of wild edible fungi (WEF), especially the ectomycorrhizal fungi, threatens the fungal diversity. Hence, this study aims to understand the Lactarius and Lactifluus species associated with Pinus kesiya pine in the highlands of Vietnam. There were 10 new records of Lactarius and Lactifluus: Lactarius akahatsu, Lactarius hatsudake, Lactarius kesiyae, Lactarius rubrocorrugatus, Lactifluus pilosus, Lactifluus gerardii, Lactifluus piperatus, Lactifluus glaucescens, Lactifluus pinguis, Lactifluus volemus. All specimens were confirm by both morphogeny and phylogenetic relationship.
