The family Entolomataceae consists of some 3 genera and over 1500 species worldwide. The species in this family all have a pink spore print and attached gills. In general the basidiomata are of pleurotoid, omphalioid, collybioid, mycenoid or tricholomatoid habit with a cosmopolitan distribution. The spores are angular in all views (Entoloma) or in apical view (Clitopilus) or bumpy and faintly angular (Rhodocybe).

The genera
Rhodogaster and Richoniella have now been absorbed in Entoloma while Rhodocybe has been absorbed in Clitopilus but for some reason R. popinalis has not been updated in Mycobank. The genus Rhodocybe will be considered valid for the moment on this site even if this is probably an oversight at Mycobank.

Dr. Noordeloos is the current authority on the
Entolomataceae and a visit to his website is recommended.
