Fungal samples were collected from Kazdağı National Park (Balıkesir/Turkey) on October 25, 2014 and they are identified by implementing both traditional methods and ITS rDNA-based molecular phylogenetic analysis. By taking into account the high sequence similarity between the collected samples (ANK DNZ 023) and Albatrellopsis flettii (Morse ex Pouzar) Audet, the collected specimen was regarded as A. flettii and the morphological data also consolidated this finding. As a result, Albatrellopsis flettii was reported for the first time from Turkey at genus and species level. Short description of the newly reported species is provided together with its macro-photographs, illustrations of spores and hyphae and spore images taken by a scanning electron microscope (SEM).
