A new species, Radiigera tropica, is described and illustrated from a tropical rain forest of Thailand dominated by Dipterocarpus spp. The species is morphologically characterized by a felty to floccose peridial surface, a four-layered peridium and small, globose basidiospores (3-4.6 μm diam) with low, dense verrucae. Moreover, some specimens have minute, granular peridioles. Additionally, it shares characteristics of both previously recognized subgenera, Taylorae and Radiigera. Following a taxonomic description, reconsideration of these subgenera and characterization of the species among previously described Radiigera species are discussed.
