Some remarks on Notholepiota sardoa Padovan et Contu. A recent collection of Notholepiota sardoa is described, with drawings of microscopic characters and colour photographs of the habitus. The species is compared with the published descriptions of the type species of the genus: N. areolata (G. Cunn.) Horak. This leads to the conclusion that the material examined does not belong to Notholepiota but to Lepiota. As a consequence, the new combination Lepiota sardoa (Padovan et Contu) Vila et Castellón is here proposed.
