Gymnopilus purpureograminicola is described here as new species. It is characterized by the presence of purplish squamules, basidiospores measuring (6.1–)6.4–9.7(–10.2) × (4.1–)4.6– 6.7 μm, lack of cystidia, and a association with grass. For comparison, the holotype of G. terricola was traced and revised. Description, discussion, illustrations of the new species and a key for allied similar taxa are provided.
