Simocybe parvispora is proposed as a new species. This small-spored fungus having orange-brown basidiomes was found growing on wood debris close to a Sphagnum bog in a Pinus sylvestris forest in Central Spain. Simocybe iberica, previously described from the Iberian Peninsula, is also studied. After reexamination of the holotype and additional collections from Madrid province, it is concluded that, on account of the distinctive macro- and microscopic characters, it should be transferred to the genus Crepidotus. Descriptions, discussions and illustrations of macro- and microscopic features are provided for both taxa.
