Abstract:  The new species Boletellus fennicus Harmaja (Boletales) is described. The species is known from several localities in southern Finland. It has been misidentified as Xerocomus (Boletus) rubellus (Krombh.) Quel. in Finland. Recently the species was, likewise erroneously, thought to represent Boletellus ripariellus (Redeuilh) Redeuilh described from France.
