Morphological, phylogenetic and biogeographic studies were carried out on Chinese collections of Flammulina. It is revealed that at least four species [F. rossica, Flammulina sp. (HKAS 51191), F. velutipes and F. yunnanensis] occur in China. Flammulina yunnanensis is described as new based on morphological and molecular data. F. rossica, a new record to China, is confirmed to have a Holarctic distribution. Flammulina sp. has a hymeniform suprapellis but is phylogenetically close to F. velutipes. Analyses of the ITS/5.8S rDNA sequences of Flammulina species suggest that collections of F. velutipes from China are more closely related to a Canadian population rather than to those of Europe and the USA.
