Phylogeny of agarics: partial systematics solutions for bryophilous omphalinoid agarics outside of the Agaricales (Euagarics).

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The taxonomy of several species previously assigned to Omphalina sensu lato or Gerronema is reevaluated in light of recent molecularly based phylogenetic hypotheses. One surmised clade, herein informally labelled the rickenelloid clade, falls outside of the Agaricales using nLSU data. Analysis of how best to classify these taxa results in the establishment of two new genera, Loreleia (type: Agaricus postii) and Sphagnomphalia (type: Clitocybe brevibasidiata), and the renaming of a later homonym, Jacobia nom. illeg., as Contumyces (type: Clitocybe rosella). New combinations are proposed and an interim key to these genera is provided.
