A new species, Leucoagaricus brunneocanus, is described from southwestern China. It is characterized by a greyish brown to brownish black fibrillose pileus, amygdaliform basidiospores, variably shaped cheilocystidia, and a pileus covering made up of repent to ascending differentiated cylindrical hyphae. Based on morphological and molecular evidences, La. brunneocanus was tentatively placed in sect. Rubrotincti subsect. Trichodermi according to Bon’s taxonomical views.
