Abstract:"Laccaria tortilis" sensu Clémençon 1984 is described as the new form Laccaria tortilis f. clemenconii based on material from Kamchatka (Asiatic Russia), Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Based on ITS rDNA analysis, the new form is molecularly identical to Laccaria tortilis but differs from it in having smaller basidiospores with shorter spines. Scanning electronic micrographs of the spores of this new form, as well as a dichotomous key for the identification of the European species of Laccaria with mono-bisporic basidia, are provided.
