Cantharellus rubescens is described and illustrated as new species from the semiarid of Northeastern Brazil. It is recognized by orange-yellow basidiomes, hymenophore and contex with a strong reddening-orange reaction, scaly stipe, basidiospores measuring 6-7.5(-9) × 4-5(-5.5) µm and having thick-walled (1-1.5 µm), terminal elements in the pileipellis.
