Marasmiellus and related genera are in a state of massive change now with new molecular data. There is no modern treatment of the sections, it’s all in a state of flux. Until generic concepts stabilize, it’s hard to work on sections!

For a traditional morphological breakdown of the sections see:

Singer, R. (1986). The Agaricales in Modern Taxonomy. Koeltz Scientific Books: Koenigstein, Germany. 981 p.

Desjardin, D.E. (1997). A Synopsis of Marasmiellus in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Mycotaxon 65: 237-261.

Antonín, V. & Noordeloos, M.E. (1993). A Monograph of Marasmius, Collybia and Related Genera in Europe. Part 1: Marasmius, Setulipes and Marasmiellus.. 229 p.

For some more modern treatments that will give a bit of info try:

Oliveira, J.J.S., Vargas-Isla, R., Cabral, T.S., Rodrigues, D.P. & Ishikawa, N.K. (2019). Progress on the phylogeny of the Omphalotaceae: Gymnopus s. str., Marasmiellus s. str., Paragymnopus gen. nov. and Pusillomyces gen. nov. Mycological Progress 18(5): 713-739.

Petersen, R.H. & Hughes, K.W. (2020). Two new genera of gymnopoid/marasmioid euagarics. Mycotaxon 135(1): 1-95.

Does anyone have a recommended text that properly describes the sections and subsections of Marasmiellus?
