Abstract


Three new species of Entoloma belonging to the subgenus Nolanea, E. brunneoumbonatum, E. luteodiscum and E. brunneoapplanatum, are described from Kerala State, India based on morphology and molecular phylogeny. Comprehensive descriptions, photographs, and comparisons with phenetically similar and phylogenetically related species are discussed. The nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) of the three species was sequenced and analyzed. The ITS-based phylogenetic analysis, performed using Maximum Likelihood (ML) method, supported both the novelty of these species and their infrageneric placement within the subgenus Nolanea. A key to the ten species of Entoloma subgenus Nolanea known from India is also provided.
