Two new taxa close to Lepiota cristata from China
Abstract:A new species, Lepiota cristatanea, is described from southwestern China. It is highly similar to L. cristata but can be distinguished by the relatively smaller basidiospores, Based on phylogenetic analysis, L. fraterna var. macrospora is transferred into L. cristata, becoming the only group in L. cristata with an abaxial and an adaxial knob on the spores.
