The present paper describes Lactarius abieticola (L. sect. Deliciosi) from Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh of Indian Himalayas. It is characterized as a medium sized orange basidiomata growing under Abies spp. with faint greenish coloration and whitish aspect on the pileus. Detailed morphological descriptions, illustrations and nrITS-based phylogenetic estimation of the species are presented. This species is a new record to Indian mycobiota.
