When the genus was first published there were two known species: Cleistocybe vernalis, sp. nov., known from one local in Washington State, and Cleistocybe gomphidioides, comb. nov. = Clitocybe gomphidioides A.H.Smith (basionym), and = Clitocybe subvelosa A.H. Sm. & D.E. Stuntz, known from Washington, Idaho, and Colorado. Since publication C. vernalis has been confirmed from western Montana. Also there have been two taxa added to the genus from new name combinations. Camarophyllus carneogriseus (Malençon) Honrubia & Llimona, was renamed Cleistocybe carneogrisea (Malençon) Vizzini, Micol. Veg. Medit. 24(2): 95-98 (2009), and Hygrophorus pleurotoides J. Favre, was renamed Cleistocybe pleurotoides J. Favre ex Vizzini, Micol. Veg. Medit. 24(2): 95-98 (2009). These two species are known from Europe and possibly elsewhere.
