Phallus glutinolens was described from Brazil by Möller in 1895. A new collection of P. glutinolens from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest revealed that Möller’s original description was based on young specimens. New information on morphology is provided for P. glutinolens, and an emendation of the species circumscription is presented. This article also presents a key to differentiate the known Brazilian members of the genus Phallus.
