We describe four new nodulose-spored species of Inocybe from tropical regions of Africa: I. beninensis, I. flavipes, I. fuscobrunnea and I. pallidiangulata. The new species are recognised based on morphological data and phylogenetic analyses of ITS, 28S and RPB2 sequences. Phylogenetic analyses indicated that I. flavipes and I. beninensis are part...

Macrofungi were survayed and collected in Pakistan during a period of 2014–2019. Basidiomata of Lepiota lilacea were collected from different forests of Swat and Kurruam districts, Khyber Pahtukhwa, Pakistan. These were analyzed by sequencing the rDNA internal transcribed spacer region. The morphology of the taxon is also described. Based on morpho...
