Abstract:  Cortinarius testaceofolius H. Lindstr. & Soap, sp. nova is described from Sweden and Norway. The species is characterised principally by its conspicuous brick-red gills, and is associated with Picea abies, more rarely with Pinus sylvestris. It seems to be one of the most common members of subgen. Telamonia in oligotrophic spruce forests of the northern taiga region.
