Abstract: Cortinarius lustrabilis Moënne-Locc. is reported for the first time from Fennoscandia. A description of the species is provided and its ecology and distribution are discussed. The nomenclature is confirmed by sequencing the type material, and the ITS-sequences (rDNA) are compared with those in gene bank and our own sequences to see the relationships of this isolated species.
