In this book the known 980 aphyllophoroid fungi, including the 89 new taxa for Finland, are listed with Finnish and Swedish common names, IUCN threat categories, habitats, life strategies, literature and distribution maps with abundances.

Most of the species grow in various kinds of forests (848 species, 86.5 %) followed by cultural habitats (84, 8.6 %). The Southern boreal zone has the highest number of species (812 species, 83 %), followed by the Hemiboreal zone (787 species, 80.3 %). Most of the species (698 species, 71.2 %) belong to the Least Concern (LC) category, followed by the Near Threatened (NT) species (85, 8.7 %).

Five new combinations are proposed: Postia immitis (Peck) Niemelä comb. nova, Postia parva (Renvall) Renvall comb. nova, Steccherinum lacerum (P. Karst.)
