The holotype of Amauroderma picipes, described by Torrend in 1920 from material collected in the State of Bahia, Brazil, was recently located in herbarium URM, but it was in poor conditions. Due to the loss of the typical characteristics of the species, a neotype is designated here. The material chosen for A. picipes was collected in the State of Rio de Janeiro and deposited in herbarium SP (95472) as A. schomburgkii f. schomburgkii. A full modern description, pictures of the basidiomata and basidiospores in light microscopy and SEM are provided.
