AbstractAbout 400 unexplained sudden deaths have occurred in Yunnan Province in southwestern China during summers over the last 35 years. Extensive field investigations revealed that a fungus called "little white mushroom" or "nail-like mushroom" by the local people could be one of the chief causes. Fieldwork showed that this fungus is a common saprophytic species growing on rotten wood in southwestern, central, and northwestern Yunnan in subtropical mountainous areas between 1,700 and 3,000 m altitude. Morphological and molecular phylogenetic analyses revealed that it is a new species of the genus Trogia, closely related to the palaeotropical T. infundibuliformis and its allies. Accordingly, T. venenata is described and illustrated.
