a lot of information out there, and a lot more work to be done; hard to keep track of everything

The type species of Rugosomyces (Rugosomyces onychinus) is nested within the genus Calocybe in the molecular phylogenies. Rugosomyces naucoria is also within Calocybe. Valid names in Calocybe exist for both taxa (Calocybe onychina and Calocybe naucoria).

Additional species formerly placed in Rugosomyces may or may not belong in Calocybe.
