A marasmioid fungus: Marasmius indopurpureostriatus (Marasmiaceae, Basidiomycota) is proposed here as new to science from Sikkim, a small Himalayan state in India. A comprehensive description with illustrations to aid in the identification, comparisons with morphologically similar taxa and an artificial key to the species of Marasmius sect. Globulares, previously reported from India are provided. © 2015. Source

Austroboletus olivaceoglutinosus sp. nov., is described from subalpine coniferous forest in northern Sikkim, India. It can be immediately recognised in the field by its glutinous, olive (often umbonate) pileus, overhanging margin that covers the hymenophore completely in young basidiomata, white to yellow lacunose-reticulate or lacerate, exceptionally long (100 – 180 × 13 – 17 mm) stipe and a strong fruity odour. Its relationship with allied taxa is discussed. © 2015, The Board of Trustees of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Source

Carex sanjappae M. Bhaumik & M.K. Pathak and Carex speciosa Kunth ssp. varmae M. Bhaumik & M.K. Pathak a new species and subspecies respectively are described and illustrated from Arunachal Pradesh, India. New species Carex sanjappae M. Bhaumik & M.K. Pathak belongs to the section 'rarae', characterized by longer spikes, utricle longer, wider and truncate aperture at apex. Comparative analyses of characters of closely related species are given in a table. Whereas new subspecies Carex speciosa ssp varmae M. Bhaumik & M. K. Pathak is worth recognizing by its longer, strongly hispidulous utricles and narrower leaves. A dichotomous key is provided for easy recognition from other subspecies. Source

The Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden is a well-known botanical garden. Cyathus thindii, a new species of bird’s nest fungus, was collected from this garden, and is described and illustrated in the present paper. It is distinct with its sessile basidiomata growing on a white mycelial pad, plicate exterior (partly) and interior wall of the peridium, comparatively large peridioles without tunica, and medium sized spores. Its relation with allied taxa is discussed and a provisional key to the Indian species of Cyathus is given in the present paper. © TÜBİTAK. Source

Boletus lakhanpalii is proposed here as new to science, with detailed morphological features and illustrations. Comparisons with allied Asian and extralimital taxa are provided. Phylogenetic analysis of the ITS barcode region show it to be closely related to an unnamed sequence from New Guinea. These sequences are recovered with uncertain placement in the Boletaceae, near sequences obtained from specimens identified as Boletus bicolor originating from the USA, and European specimens identified as Boletus fragrans and Xerocomellus armeniacus.
