Four hundred and ninety-five species of Discomycetes (cup-fungi) belonging to 136 genera are currently known in China. Studies of the Chinese cup-fungi during 1983- 1993 are briefly reviewed. Two fifths of the known species were discovered in this period of time. There is a high potential of finding a huge number of species in the near future. Although significant progress has been made, compared with the world record of Discomycetes the Chinese mycologists have a long way to go. Investigation and exploration of unknown and undescribed species are our urgent tasks.

Key words: Ranalisma rostratum, life history, mechanisms of endangerment
