“Heimiomyces tenuipes is a morphologically variable, pantropical species, accepted by many in the genus Xeromphalina . Unpublished molecular data indicate a small group of species determined as belonging to the morpho – genus Heimiomyces (type: H. rheicolor (Berk.) Singer, a synonym of H. tenuipes ) form a well – supported clade sister to taxa commonly accepted in Xeromphalina , and following Horak (1979), we recognize Heimiomyces as a distinct genus. The Príncipe specimen matches nicely material from Africa reported by Pegler (1977). Heimiomyces neovelutipes (Hongo) E. Horak, described from Papua New Guine a, differs subtly in forming a trichodermium pileipellis with more numerous and narrower pileocystidia, and cheilocystidia and caulocystidia with numerous knob – like outgrowths (Horak 1979).”
