Abstract:  Contrary to the current concept, the type of Helvella solitario Karst. 1871 (Peziza solitario Karst. 1869, non Schwein. 1834) is shown to be conspecific with that of H. queletii Bres. 1882. The specific name given by Karsten has priority over the latter name, and is consequently the correct name for the species.
Part of the material treated under H. solitario by H. Dissing was, however, found not to be conspecific with the type. Such material turned out to represent a new species, which is described as Helvella conjusa Harmaja.
Some other synonymies in Helvella are presented and corrected.
