Three new species of Entoloma s.l. from Kerala State, India are described, illustrated and discussed. Entoloma haematinum, a very small, bright red, omphalinoid species, reminiscent of Hygrocybe cantharellus, is unique because of its quadrate-cuboid spores; it fits well in subgenus Omphaliopsis. Entoloma nubilum and E. carneum are both characterised by their small, pleurotoid basidiocarps. The first is related to the species of subgenus Leptonia; the second fits better in subgenus Claudopus. Comments are given on the taxonomic position of the new species.
