ABSTRACT: Twelve new taxa (11 species and 1 variety) of the genus Marasmius s. str. (Basidiomycetes, Tricholomataceae) from tropical Africa are published. Six species (M. albidocremeus, M. camerunensis, M. lacteoides, M. muramwyanensis, M. kigwenensis, M. tshopoensis) belong to sect. Globulares, two species (and one variety) to sect. Hygrometrici (M. minutoides, M. minutoides var. angustisporus, M. nyikae), and one species each to sect. Epiphylli (M. foliiphilus), sect. Fusicystides (M. longicystidiatus) and sect. Neosessiles (M. bururiensis). Detailed macroscopic and microscopic description, drawings and a short discussion is given for each species. These studies represent a part of a larger taxonomic project dealing with African Marasmii.
