Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

Else Vellinga mentioned this change to me. The separation is based on DNA evidence that shows this species is closer to several species of Omphalina and Rickenella than to Clavaria vermicularis (type for Clavaria) which is closer to several other Clavaria species as well as the genus Gymnopilus than it is to clade clade containing Alloclavaria purpurea.
