Sydowia 57(2): 154-165.
Taxa of Hygrophorus described by Kalchbrenner from Slovakia were studied. Original descriptions were compared with data of recently collected specimens from type areas and current taxonomic concepts. Kalchbrenner's illustrations of Hygrophorus erubescens var. capreolarius, H. hypothejus var. mendax and H. lucorum were selected for lectotypes. Epitypes for H. hypothejus var. mendax and H. lucorum were designated. Hygrophorus capreolarius and H. lucorum are well delimited species, the name H. hypothejus var. mendax represents a synonym of H. hypothejus var. hypothejus. Hygrophorus lucorum was re-described.
Key words: Hygrophorus capreolarius, H. hypothejus, H. lucorum, type, taxonomy.
