Lepiota bengalensis is introduced as a new species based on material collected in Bangladesh. This species is characterized by its small to medium-sized basidiomata, brownish red, reddish brown to reddish orange squamules on pileus, fasciculate with narrowly clavate cheilocystidia, a hymeniform pileus covering, and strongly dextrinoid, cyanophilic, ellipsoid-cylindrical basidiospores.
This species is a member of Lepiota sect. Lilaceae, and phylogenetically closely related to the European species L. ochraceofulva based on the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequence data. Descriptions, color images of the basidiomata and line drawings are presented.

Keywords: Basidiomycota, tropical fungus, molecular phylogeny, taxonomy.
