In the publication on Strophariaceae by Noordeloos, he lakes a closer look again at the genera of Stropharia and Leratiomyces. Machiel Noordeloos, Strophariaceae s.l., in Fungi Europei vol. 13. 648 pp, 43 plates with line-drawings, and 377 colored photographs. Edizioni Candusso, 2011.

In this work he has new descriptions of L. percevalii and L. magnivelaris, which people have equated with S. riparia in the past. See, e.g, Kuo, M. (2009, February). Leratiomyces percevalii. Retrieved from the MushroomExpert.Com Web site:

Here Noodeloos does not mention S. riparia at all, and separates the two Leratiomyces taxa on qualities of the veil. One can be left to assume that S. riparia hould be considered a separate North American taxon, which should be moved to Leratiomyces at some point.

Please note that neither Stropharia riparia nor Leratiomyces riparius have ever been reduced to synonymy with Leratiomyces percevalii. Many pre-2008 collections that were identified as S. riparia have been reidentified as L. percevalii, however.
