Abstract

Xerula hispida sp. nov. is described from Quercus-dominated forests of Costa Rica. It has been found in a number of sites throughout the country. The exact distribution outside of Costa Rica is unknown, but it is anticipated that it occurs in Quercus-dominated forests in other southern Central American countries. Xerula steffenii has also been collected in these forests, and a description of it is provided here. This is the first report of this later taxon from Central America.
