A new combination on the species level, Pachygenium callosum (M.N. Correa) Mytnik, Szlach. & Górniak is validated. The taxonomic position of the new taxa is briefly discussed. Pachygenium is compared in a table with Pelexia on the generic level. A brief taxonomic history of Pachygenium is presented.
