A new species of Tricholoma, T. smithii, is described from New Mexico and Colorado.  It is reminiscent of and belongs in the same clade as Tricholoma pardinum.   It has the same stature as T. pardinum but differs by the browner pileal coloration and by the presence of pleurocystidia.  A detailed description, drawings and images of the new species are provided as well as a phylogenetic analysis based on ITS sequences.
