Menolli Jr., Nelson & Marina Capelari. Records and two new species of Volvariella (Pluteaceae, Agaricales) from Brazil. Mycotaxon 106: 385-398. 2008.

ABSTRACT: Two new species of Volvariella, V. heterospora and V. nullicystidiata, are described and illustrated from specimens collected at the Parque Estadual da Cantareira, São Paulo, SP, Brazil. V. heterospora is characterized by its two types of basidiospores, whereas V. nullicystidiata lacks cystidia. Volvariella bombycina and V. perciliata, both collected in the same area, are also described, illustrated and recorded. The latter represents the first record for São Paulo State and the second record for Brazil. In addition, the specimens of Volvariella deposited at herbaria SP and collected in remnants of the Atlantic forest of the metropolitan region of São Paulo, SP, Brazil, were re-evaluated.
