Abstract


Phallus fuscoechinovolvatus is described as a new species from southern China, mainly characterized by its dark brown volva with white spines. Molecular phylogenetic analyses based on the sequences of nuclear ribosomal large subunit (nrLSU) and nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) confirm its species status within Phallaceae. Detailed morphological description, colour photographs, line drawings of the new species and comparisons with similar taxa are presented.
