Entocybe is proposed as a new genus in the Entolomataceae (Agaricomycetes, Basidiomycota) based on morphological and molecular evidence
Morphological and molecular characteristics support the recognition of a well-defined taxonomic group within the Entolomataceae. The distinctive basidiospore form and a three locus DNA analysis separate the species that share these characteristics from other species of Entoloma s. l. We propose here a new genus, Entocybe, to accommodate these taxa.
Entoloma; Section Turfosa; new combinations; nlsu; RPB2 and mitSSU sequences; Rhodocybe
