Lepiota farinolens is recorded for the first time for Russia and North Asia on the basis of its collection from the Republic of Altai. Morphological description, data on its ecology and distribution are provided. The analysis of morphological features shows some insignificant differences of L. farinolens sample from the Republic of Altai from known European materials from France and Spain: the lack of the farinaceous smell and the presence of the 2-spored basidia.
