Abstract:  A polypore species, Skeletocutis jelicii Tortić & David, hitherto known only from Yugoslavia, is reported from Finland. It differs from all the other species of Skeletocutis Kotl. & Pouz. found in Finland by its monomitic hyphal system and small subglobose spores. The three collections were made from very decayed coniferous wood in protected areas.
S. jelicii is thoroughly redescribed and illustrated. Its distribution and ecology, and also the concept of the genus Skeletocutis are briefly discussed.
