During the course of macrofungal forays, we collected several wood-rotting fungi from three states in India: Bihar, Jharkhand, and Maharashtra. We identified some of these macrofungal collections as Favolus roseus Lloyd. A critical literature survey and taxonomic investigation established that this is the first report of F. roseus from India. We give a detailed morphological description, illustration, and molecular phylogeny of the species, along with taxonomic note and extended biogeographical distributional map.
