Abstract: Based on a detailed study of holotypes, emended descriptions of two somewhat problematic species are given. Recent material of those taxa is also presented with colour photographs. Russula nuoljae and R. purpureofusca were both described by Kühner based on one or two fruitbodies collected from Scandinavian fjelds. R. cupreola is shown to be synonymous with R. purpureofusca.

Key words: aphyllophoroid fungi, East Siberia, threatened species

Abstract: Species assemblage and taxonomical notes of some aphyllophoroid fungi of the middle part of Yenisei river basin are provided. The material was collected in August 2013. Altogether 211 species belonging to 94 genera are reported. The three study localities are situated in the middle boreal subzone in East Siberia, and comparisons with some other Siberian Nature Reserves in the middle boreal subzone are made. Some threatened species are briefly discussed and a few notes on interesting specimens are given.

Key words: central East Siberia, clavarioid fungi, corticioid fungi, poroid fungi

Abstract:  The forests in Tunguska River basin in central East Siberia were investigated in autumn 2013. The closest study sites of Aphyllophoroid fungi are situated about 650 km south of Tunguska River in Krasnoyarsk area. Altogether 548 collections and notes were made and 248 taxa identified. The most species rich morph groups were corticioid fungi with 120 taxa, followed by 65 poroid taxa and 63 species of cantharelloid, clavarioid and hericioid fungi. The richest genus was Typhula with 17 species before Hyphodontia sensu lato (10 species), Tubulicrinis (9), Phellinus sensu lato (8) and Phlebia (8). Some short descriptions of untypical or unidentified specimens are given.

Key words: Agaricales, Holmvassdalen Nature Reserve, Norway, ITS

Abstract: Entoloma graphitipes var. graphitipes is here reported from one location in Holmvassdalen Nature Reserve in the county Nordland, Norway. The species was first found in Germany in 1982, and then five times in Spain. So far Holmvassdalen is the only location in Northern Europe where it has been reported. Comparison of ITS sequences from the Norwegian material and the holotype of E. graphitipes f. cystidiatum support the morphological identification. Details of macro- and microscopical features as well as ecology are presented.

Key words: Inocybe, Agaricales, taxonomy, molecular systematics

Abstract:  Two nodulose-spored species, belonging to section Marginatae, are described from Fennoscandia. Inocybe caprimulgi grows on sandy soils from the hemiboreal zone to lowalpine zone. I. lacunarum appears often in moist depressions, in the hemiboreal and southern boreal zones. I. substellata is recorded for first time from Sweden, Norway and Finland, and I. krieglsteineri from Sweden.
