Hypholoma litorale is described as a new species on the basis of collections made near Olbia (Sardinia, Italy), in coastal grasslands. It seems to be close to the north-American species H. olivaceotinctum, but it differs in several respects both macro- and micromorphologically. Photographs of fresh material and of the main micromorphological features of the new species are provided.
