Working name

Actually “Psathyloma” is just a working name, so far undescribed. It appears to be ectomycorrhizal, and would then be the only such genus with a distinct germ pore on its spores that I know. Can anybody refute that? Comments….?

…but as far as I know this is closely related to the genus Hebeloma.

Actually, this was previously described as a Pholiota by Singer, P. psathyrelloides Sing.
But has been proven to be a distinct genus that is closer to Hebeloma, there are two undescribed species found here in NZ and they are commonly found fruiting next to each other.
