The holotype of Lepiota shixingensis was restudied, and a detailed description with illustrations for it is provided. Lepiota furfuraceipes is described and illustrated as a new species. It is similar to L. shixingensis, but differs from the latter by its larger basidiocarps, white lamellae, and mostly ellipsoid and somewhat larger basidiospores. Furthermore, the cheilocystidia of L. furfuraceipes are often septate and with brownish to brown necropigments.
