it can’t be as bad, since many of them were split out from Collybia. Beyond that, I dont’ know.

is is still the junk genus Collybia was?

or has it settled into some semblance of “monophyleticity?”

Gymnopus is not one of those genera where gill attachment is a make-or-break feature (unlike Agaricus or Cantharellus, for example). There is a fair amount of variation, and free or pseudo-free gills are not uncommon in fruitbodies produced by mushrooms in this genus.

I’m not sure if the cap color changed after collection, but the caps are now a dull brown shade, and I couldn’t reproduce it by adjusting the white balance.
