Abstract

The saprophytic fungus genus Cryptomarasmius has 28 reported species worldwide.  We report here the first record of Cryptomarasmius exustoides in India, extending the distribution of Cryptomarasmius.  A detailed taxonomic description with illustrations, and phylogenetic analysis with related species are provided.
