The fungal herbarium currently holds more than 58,000 specimens that consist of macrofungal fruiting bodies (mushrooms, shelf fungi, etc.), plants infected by fungi, and isolates of microfungi on dried agar plates.

These include approximately 700 type specimens of mushrooms and related fungi that were deposited by the prolific mycologist William A. Murrill.
