Aseroë coccinea, an invalid name for a Japanese phalloid, is formally validated. Morphological features of A. coccinea are described and illustrated. This fungus is well distinguishable from the other known species of Aseroë by 7-9 bright red arms dispersed radially on the apex of the receptacle, not bifurcating but simple, and consisting of a single tubulate chamber.
