mistakenly sent (I’m assuming) in the form of an email to me:

Hydropus also has a stipe that exudes colorless liquid (that’s why
it’s called Hydropus which is Greek and means “waterfoot”). But then
again I know that this is the case in other agaric genera too.
Otherwise it is close to Mycena. So has anyone done DNA on this genus?
Recently Rhodocybe has been given up and was included into Clitopilus
or even Clitopilus has been subsided under Entoloma or the like, I am
not sure. There are so many changes going on that I lost oversight

What makes a Hydropus?

This (and a number of other Hydropi google images) look like a possible match for some ID-less neotropical agarics. White spores… what else?

Journal Jail (aka JSTOR) has the answers: http://www.jstor.org/pss/4393760, for a price.
