Abstract:  The genus Clitocybe (Fr.) Staude (Agaricales) is amended to comprise only species with cyanophobic spore wall. Species with cyanophilic spore wall and hitherto included in Clitocybe are transferred to Lepista (Fr.) W. G. Smith, which genus becomes amended as to include species with strongly or weakly cyanophilic spore wall, with collapsed or normal spore walls in mounts of dried lamellae, and with pinkish buff, deep yellow, very pale yellow or pure white spore deposit. C. fragrans (Fr.) Kumm. is reported to have warted spores. One new species is also described: Lepista polycephala Harmaja. The following fourteen new combinations are made: Lepista aeruginosa (Bigelow) Harmaja, L. agrestis (Harmaja) Harmaja, L. amarescens (Harmaja) Harmaja, L. diatreta (Fr.) Harmaja, L. fragrans (Fr.) Harmaja, L. harmajae (Lamoure) Harmaja, L. idahoensis (Bigelow) Harmaja, L. marginella (Harmaja) Harmaja, L. metachroa (Fr.) Harmaja, L. metachroides (Harmaja) Harmaja, L. odora (Fr.) Harmaja, L. phyllophila (Fr.) Harmaja, L. regularis (Peck) Harmaja and L. robusta (Peck) Harmaja.
