A new species of Clitopilus sect. Clitopilus, viz. C. chrischonensis, is described on the basis of macro- and micromorphological characters, and of a ITS-LSU rDNA Bayesian phylogenetic analysis. A full description, taxonomic discussion on allied species, a photograph of fresh basidiomes and a photograph and line drawings of the most relevant microcharacters are provided.
