Abstract: Peniophorella tsugae, Phlebiella alnicola and Trechispora araneosa are reported as new to Finland. New records of Hastodontia halonata, Helicogloea lagerheimii and Peniophorella echinocystis are presented and notes of the habitats and substrates are given. Descriptions of the new species and H. halonata are given as well as microscopical drawings. The taxonomy of P. alnicola is briefly discussed and comparison between Peniophorella pallida and P. tsugae is made. Most new Finnish records derive from SW Finland, from forested islands of the Archipelago Sea and mainland coastline. Inventories were carried out during late summer and autumn 2008 and 2009. Hastodontia halonata is reported as new to Estonia.
