giver of all (occasionally dubious) wisdom:

Hydropus was circumscribed by Rolf Singer in 1948.3 Species in the genus have fruit bodies with caps that are mycenoid, collybioid, or omphaloid in form. Most species occur in tropical and subtropical regions, where they grow as saprobes on rotting wood, forest litter, and mosses.

in this case, the article happens to have a point. The stature can be mycenoid, collybioid or omphalinoid, as in the genus masquerades as both the very genera the adjectivals imply and any other genera which have a knack for doing the same.
