Abstract: Specimens of Pleurotus growing on Araucaria angustifolia were collected, macro- and microscopically described and compared with the type of Pleurotus araucariicola which was collected by Singer in the same area and on the same substrate fifty years before. Intercompatibility mating tests were carried out with P. albidus, P. pulmonarius and P. ostreatus. The morphological studies and the compatibility tests allowed us to conclude that P. araucariicola is a later synonym of P. pulmonarius.
