Name: Marasmius brunneoolivascens
Author: Wannathes, Desjardin & Lumyong
Marasmius brunneooliva- scens is characterized by a striate to sulcate pileus coloured brown to greyish brown with a dark brown disc, subdistant (12-18) broad lamellae colored olive brown to greyish olive or yellowish olive with or without brown to olive brown edges, a glabrous stipe, fusoid basidiospores with mean 13.0 × 4.4 μm and mean Q = 3, two types of pleurocystidia (simple strangulate cells and scattered Siccus- type broom cells), and an absence of caulocystidia. This new species is similar to two African species. Marasmius grandisetu- losus Singer differs in forming white to cream- coloured lamellae, longer basidiospores (17-23 μm long) and lacks olive tones (Singer, 1964; Antonín, 2007). Marasmius elaeocephalus Singer sensu Antonín (2007) differs in forming an olive brown pileus with yellow tones on the margin, yellowish white lamellae with concolorous edges, and lacks two types of pleurocystidia.
