I was confusing myself. Sorry.

Could you rephrase the question?

I misread your first question as asking about the Crepidotaceae, but now that I see it’s about Crepidotus.. well, I’m equally confused about what’s unsatisfactory about the IF authorship/citation…

To be sure we’re on the same page (and although it’s simply a matter of curiosity), I was wondering about the authorship (and cite) of the genus if has been moved from the family where Staude put it.

It’s Crepidotaceae

Crepidotaceae was rejected in favor of Cortinariaceae (search here:; this only applies if the two are considered taxonomic synonyms. In modern phylogeny they are not, so Crepidotaceae can still be used.

Crepidotaceae is considered sister to the Inocybaceae. It is phylogenetically acceptable to lump them, in which case Crepidotaceae would have priority (IF is wrong, see Matheny 2009)… but mycologists are mainly not doing that.

Authorship is here –

Crepidotaceae or Inocybaceae?
By: Joseph D. Cohen (Joe Cohen)

Both MB & IF say Inocybaceae.
MB also says Crepidotaceae is rejected. IF does not.
If legit, who is the author(s), what is the citation for Crepidotus?

(I lack the knowledge, experience, and time to run this down.)
