In 1994 Corner published five new species within the genus Psathyrella , all having been collected on the Malay Peninsula between 1929 and 1930. Three of these species belong to the genus Hebeloma and with their vinaceous colored lamellae and spore print, when fresh, they belong to H. sect. Porphyrospora . Of these three species, only one, P. flavidifolia , was validly published and thus we herewith recombine it as H. flavidifolium . The other two species, P. splendens and P. verrucispora , are synonyms of H. parvisporum and H. lactariolens , respectively. We also describe a new Malayan species, H. radicans , which also belongs to H. sect. Porphyrospora . These findings confirm the western Pacific Rim as a diversity hotspot for H. sect. Porphyrospora . The records described within this paper, represent the first recognition that the genus Hebeloma , and indeed that members of the ectomycorrhizal Hymenogastraceae , are present on the Malay Peninsula.
