Not a synonym for Pholiota

While these species were once treated as part of Pholiota, this is no longer the case. Based on micromorphological features (other than spore color) and molecular phylogeny, Kuehneromyces seems to be a close relative of Deconica, or is otherwise a basal member of the Strophariaceae.
