Some certainly do, I would hypothesize that genera like Agrocybe do that often, but I would be careful about the transition from temperate to tropical and northern hemisphere to southern. Also taxa like C. apala has already been demonstrated to have different genetic sequences between Europe and North America and according to the recent tomb on the genus even in Europe it has some close lookalikes.

I think some of these really common species occur all around the world. They are well adapted to many habitats and that is why they are so common. It would be interesting to analyze some sequence data.

Is a temperate taxon, mostly if not only limited to Europe, there are some evidence that North American forms are not the same and in Anton Hausknecht’s Conocybe book he considers C. apala and C. albipes as different species….
My argument is that we should not apply names from the northern hemisphere for Brazilian collections unless we have a good reason to.
