Fifteen new taxa are described from Kerala State, India, based on collections made by the first author. Three taxa fit subgenus Pouzarella (E. testaceostrigosum, E. violaceo-villosum, and E. dysthales var. keralense). Four species are described as having cuboid spores (E. albidoquadratum, E. brunneoquadratum, E. keralense, and E. perin-fundibuliforme). Entoloma indoviolaceum is a typical Leptonia, close to E. tjallingiorum from Europe. Two species belong to sect. Cyanula: E. calliviolaceum and E. griseoviolascens. The velutinous pileus of E. griseolazulinum is representative for sect. Calliderma. Rather enigmatic is E. allocybesimilis with affinities to E. excentricum in subgenus Allocybe, and E. perflavidum and E. tectonicola probably must be placed in the mainly tropical subgenus Inocephalus. Finally, E. pruinosocutis represents a new Alboleptonia. A new name, Entoloma indocarneum, is introduced for E. carneum Manim., Leelav. & Noordel. A key and checklist are presented to all species known so far from Kerala State.

More about this publication?
  • Persoonia aims to publish papers dealing with molecular phylogeny and evolution of fungi. A further aim is to promote fungal taxonomy by employing a polythetic approach to clarify the true phylogeny and relationships within the kingdom Fungi. The journal publishes high-quality papers elucidating known and novel fungal taxa at the DNA level, and also strives to present novel insights into evolutionary processes and relationships. Papers to be considered include research articles and reviews.

    Papers are published using a Fast Track system. This implies that the papers are immediately published online and freely available through the internet via this website. Volumes appear twice a year (June and December). From Volume 36 onwards (2016) hard copy volumes will only be made available through printing-on-demand. The issues can be ordered separately through the Publication Division of Naturalis Biodiversity Center; e-mail: [email protected]

    Persoonia is a journal published jointly by the Naturalis Biodiversity Center and the Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute.
