A taxonomic study of the tribe Agariceae Pat. (Higher Basidiomycetes) of Israel is given. The tribe Agariceae is represented by 38 species and infraspecific taxa related to 3 genera: Melanophyllum Vel., Agaricus L: Fr. emend. Karst., and Gyrophragmium Mont. Three species: Agaricus bonii S. Wasser, A. nevoi S. Wasser, and A. herinkii S. Wasser, were described as new for science earlier. Melanophyllum haematospermum (Bull: Fr.) Kreisel, Agaricus aestivalis Moell. var. flavotacta(Moell.) Moell., A. bitorquis (Quél.) Sacc., A. campestris L: Fr. Var. floccipes (Moell.) Pil., A. geesteranii Bas et Heinem., A. gennadii (Chat. et Bond.) P.D. Orton var. microsporus (Bohus) S. Wasser, A. impudicus (Rea) Pil., A. praeclaresquamosus Freeman, A. pequinii (Bond.) Konr. et Maubl., A. silvaticus Schaeff. var pallens Pil., A. xanthoderma Gen. var. lepiotoides R. Mre, A. vaporarius (Pers.) Cappelli, and A. lanipes (Moell. et J. Schaeff.) Sing, are new for Israel and some of them for Asia or for the Middle East.
