We describe Elaphomyces verruculosus as new species from eastern North America, ranging from Quebec, Canada south along the eastern USA and along the Gulf Coast to northeastern México. E. verruculosus is similar in overall morphology to E. granulatus of Europe. In addition we re-describe E. appalachiensis and report it as occurring in Florida, Iowa, Tennessee, West Virginia and Mexico.
