We identified 17 species of fungi that are new to Kampinos National Park. Sixteen were found during surveys of areas damaged by a strong wind in 2017. The remaining species was found outside the windthrow area. Descriptions of four species new to Poland (Cortinarius subcompar, Hyaloscypha quercicola, Hypocrea tremelloides, and Trechispora aff. invisitata) are also provided. The current number of macromycetes taxa identified in Kampinos National Park is 1,654.
