A new species of Craterellus, C. carolinensis, is described. Descriptions are given for the type specimens of Thelephora subundulata and Stereum calyculus and for representative specimens of Craterellus sinuosus, C. crispus, and Cantharellus lutescens sensu Fr. 1821. Comments on the relative taxonomic relevance of accepting Pseudocraterellus at generic rank are made. Two North American varieties of Cantharellus cibarius thought to have wide distribution are informally described.
