Inocybe ahmadii sp. nov. and a new record of I. leptocystis from Pakistan
Two smooth-spored Inocybe species, I. ahmadii (a new taxon) and I. leptocystis, were collected from moist temperate forests of Pakistan and identified based on molecular phylogenetic analysis and assessment of macro- and micro-morphological characters. Inocybe ahmadii is described as new based on its smooth phaseoliform to sub-amygdaliform basidiospores, pinkish brown lamellae, white stipe surface that is brownish at the apex, broadly lageniform hyaline pleurocystidia, and similar but more frequent cheilocystidia. Our I. leptocystis specimen, molecularly supported as conspecific with specimens from Austria, China, Italy, and Finland, represents a first record of the species from Pakistan.
