Cribbea seems to be in one of the unnamed Hymenopellis clades (see “Three New Recorded Species Of The Physalacriaceae On Ulleung Island, Korea” by Park et al, 2017).
Accepting or rejecting these genera within Oudemansiella is basically a lumping vs. splitting issue, but on the basis of (1) an apparent scholarly trend to prefer Oudemansiella s.l., (2) a lack of morphological intuitiveness to split it so much, and (3) the bad incompleteness of the Hymenopellis proposals (with Dactylosporina, Ponticulomyces, etc) w.r.t. the “Six Simple Guidelines”, I support MO preferring Oudemansiella s.l.
Cribbea as defined as only the secotioid/gasteroid Oudemansiella species has no support in any DNA study. Giving its name to the clade containing described Cribbea species and its close agaric Hymenopellis relatives (“Hymenopellis C” in Park et al) could work, but thankfully nobody has suggested that.
