The present study reports Crinipellis cupreostipes (first described from Thailand) as a new record for Indian mycobiota. A phylogenetic analysis based on nrDNA ITS shows that C. cupreostipes can be readily distinguished from other morphologically similar species such as Crinipellis nigricaulis var. macrospora. A detailed taxonomic description with illustrations and an artificial key to Crinipellis species previously reported from India and its neighboring countries are provided.
