New species of Pholiota and Flammula described by Josef Velenovský, an important Czech mycologist, have been studied using the type specimens, original material and descriptions. All 16 taxa published by Velenovský have been revised: Pholiota decurrens, P.fallax, P. mammilata, P. maximovici, P. mucosa, P. nigrosetosa, P. pseudohypholoma, P. rigelliae, P. rostrata, P. salicina, P. sulphurea, Flammula granulosa, F. pholioti for mis, F. picea, F. squamulosa and F. vacini. The revision showed that most of them do not belong to the genus Pholiota in the modern sense and in fact represent species of the genera Cortinarius, Flammulaster, Galerina, Kuehneromyces, Pholiotina and Tricholomopsis. Of this group, six species are identical with earlier described taxa (Cortinarius bolaris, Flammulaster limulatus, Galerina triscopa, G. unicolor, Kuehneromyces mutabilis, Tricholomopsis rutilans) and the other are considered either insufficiently documented dubious species or should be studied by specialists of the aforementioned genera. All of Velenovský’s new species belonging to Pholiota in the present sense are identical with earlier described species: Pholiota albocrenulata, P. alnicola, P. flammans and P. gummosa. Consequently, no species of Pholiota s. str. described by Velenovský can be considered a “good” new species.
