NOTE: This species was previously named Rhodocybe mundula. DNA analysis in 2015 returned Rhodocybe popinalis, but the macro and micro information along with Dr. Andrew Methven's close study of the actual voucher specimen confirmed this specimen is Rhodocybe mundula. Dr. Methven states that Rhodocybe popinalis is a different taxon and they are not synonyms (see annotations). For further information on the debate about this species, not this exact specimen, go to Michael Kuo's website: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/clitopilus_popinalis.html
