A new species, Michenera incrustata from southern China, is described and illustrated. It is the second species in Michenera and differs from the generic type, M. atrocreas, by its hyaline, thick-walled lamprocystidia and larger basidia and basidiospores. The 5.8S–ITS2 and nrLSU sequence similarities between M. incrustata and M. atrocreas are 83% of 437 base pairs and 95.5% of 870 base pairs, respectively.
