The region of the study is characterized by numerous lakes and rugged terrain. The checklist of fungi of the genus Russula is based on the material collected by the author in 1999–2013 as well as the herbarium collections and published data of the other authors. The checklist encompasses 60 species, 28 of these were found to be rare in the area. R. azurea and R. favrei were reported for the first time in Belarus. Nineteen species – R. alutacea, R. atropurpurea, R. aurantiaca, R. brunneoviolacea, R. consobrina, R. fellea, R. grisea, R. heterophylla, R. laeta, R. mustelina, R. nitida, R. pectinatoides, R. pseudodelica, R. pseudointegra, R. rhodopoda, R. rosea, R. sanguinea, R. seperina and R. versicolor were reported for the first time in Pskov region.
