Abstract. The article is devoted to the development of a simplified scheme for
assessing the regional category of rarity of macrofungi on the example of Morchella
steppicola and Hemileccinum impolitum, which live in the Belgorod region of the
Russian Federation (RF). Based on data from field studies (2009-2020) conducted in
the ecotopes of the Belgorod region, and a comparative analysis of global and
regional approaches to assessing the category of rarity of biological species and
optimizing the evaluation criteria for the regional level, a simplified scheme for
evaluating the regional category of rarity of macrofungi has been developed. The
technical side of the assessment according to the developed scheme is shown.
According to the results of the assessment, at the moment M. steppicola is considered
as a rare species in the territory of the Belgorod region, requiring increased protection
measures. H. impolitum is considered as a non-rare species that does not require
increased protection measures on the territory of the Belgorod region.
