The present work is a fully revised edition of two formerly published volumes (Antonín & Noordeloos 1993, 1997). A new edition appeared to be necessary to include new species, new records, and changed taxonomic concepts in the groups concerned. Phylogenetic studies using molecular markers radically changed our insight in the relationships in the group concerned, and forced us to re-evaluate morphological and ecological characters which formed the base of earlier classifications. These studies are still in full progress, and the results so far do not allow us to present a “definitive” classification. Some studies seem to contradict each other, mainly because of different sampling and the use ofdifferent markers. And, since the marasmioid and collybioid fungi in a wide sense comprises very many species, particularly in the relatively under sampled tropical areas, much more work has to be done. lt is also our concern to maintain or create nomenclatural stability instead of introducing new generic and infrageneric names. Consequently the classification presented here, although it fundamentally differs from our earlier ones, still is a compromise. By accepting both monophyletic and polyphyletic genera, we have tried to present the most actual state of knowledge, also keeping in mind that the primary goal of this book claims to be an up-to-date identification tool, which requires a practical and clear concept.
