Description: A collection of Mycena epipterygia from montane cloud forest in the Dominican Republic was found to have one-fourth to one-half monosporous basidia mixed with bisporous basidia. It is described as a new variety, M. epipterygia var. domingensis Lodge, differing from M. epipterygia var. epipterygioides and other two-spored varieties in having smaller dimensions of spores from bisporous basidia and an abundance of monosporous basidia, as well as differences in ecology and macro- and other microscopic characters. An additional member of sect. Hygrocyboideae, Mycena griseoviridis, was found to be common in mid- to high-elevation pine forests of the Dominican Republic. All collections of M. griseoviridis examined closely resemble M. griseoviridis var. cascadensis described from conifer forests in Washington.

Keywords: Agaricales, Dominican Republic, Mycena, disjunct populations, taxonomy
