Abstract

Trichaleurina javanica was collected from tropical dry evergreen forests, located in the southeastern coastal belt of India. This is the first report of the species from southern India.  Trichaleurina javanica is a fleshy and rubbery cup-like mushroom, brownish-grey in colour with a brilliant yellowish-orange disc.  The identification is supported using morphological and microscopical characters.  It is one of the less known wild edible mushrooms belonging to Ascomycota.
