Documentation of Boletaceae in Sarawak, mushrooms with pores is poorly reported. The aim of this research is to identify the species under the Boletaceae family collected at Kubah National Park including Matang Wildlife Centre. Collections of the samples were carried out in October (2016), November (2016) and March (2017). A total of 36 samples of the mushrooms were collected and identified on the basis of the macroscopic and microscopic characteristics. The mushroom collected representing ten genera. Then, 21 samples were identified to species level. Genera of the Boletaceae in this study were Tylopilus, Gyroporus, Austroboletus, Boletus, Xerocomus, Fistulinella, Aureoboletus, Phylloporus, Bolettelus dan Pulveroboletus. Out of 36 samples, 6 species were first time recorded in Sarawak which was Tylopilus alboater, Boletus mirabalus, Boletellus ananas, Boletus aurisporus, Boletus nanus and Fistulinella viridis. Molecular study also had been carried out in this study. Although most of the PCR products showed single band after the gel was viewed and photographed with UV light transilluminator, the result for sequence blasting was unsuccessful. Detailed morphological and microscopic characteristics of the Boletaceae recorded were documented in this study.
