Abstract:  The taxonomy, distribution and ecology of the rarely collected agaric Mythicomyces corneipes (Fr.) Redhead & Smith are treated. The species has been collected from six sites in Fennoscandia. These collections also represent the known European distribution. A colour photograph, the morphology and a detailed account of the ecology are presented. Features not reported earlier are the amyloid reaction in the cystidial walls, the dextrinoid reaction of the spores and their small plage.
