FUNNZ 2021 Colloquium Abstract: New Zealand wax-caps are distinctive and frequently observed fungi described in the genera Hygrophorus, Gliophorus, Humidicutis, Hygrocybe and ‘Camarophyllus’. They are especially common in wetter regions and in non-mycorrhizal forests. The number of described species has increased since Greta Stevenson’s initial survey in 1962, but their phylogenetic relationships have remained unstudied, and there has been no revision of the group since Egon Horak’s monograph in 1990 (which included 57 taxa).
The genera included here are Ileodicytyon, Anthurus, Aseroe, Clathrus, Pseudocolus, Claustula, Lysurus, Mutinus, Protubera & Phallobata.
The genera included here are Conocybe, Bolbitius, Pholiotina, Descolea, Descomyces & Timgrovea
The genera included here are Cystoderma, Squamanita, Cystodermella and Ripartitella.
Notes on a few odds and ends in the Agaricales sub-oder Tricholomatineae, and species in other groups that look like them. Including Pseudoclitocybe, Pleurocollybia, Pseuobaeospora, Callistosporium, Asproinocybe, Leucopaxillus, Dermoloma, Porpoloma, Neohygrocybe, Aeruginospora and others.
