Abstract

The present article reports five heterobasidiomycetous taxa, viz., Dacryopinax spathularia (Dacrymycetaceae), Exidia glandulosa, Pseudohydnum gelatinosum (Exidiaceae), Tremella fuciformis, and T. mesenterica (Tremellaceae), based on collections made from West Bengal, India, with their morpho-anatomical details.  Dacryopinax spathularia is reported from Odisha and Uttar Pradesh while Tremella fuciformis and T. mesenterica are reported from Chhattisgarh.
