Generic short diagnoses: Mostly elegant, mycenoid, saprobic, vivid brown-spored agarics mostly without veil, and with adnate to free lamellae, these more crowded than in similar Galerina species. Pileipellis hymeniform, lecythiform cells always present on lamella edges and also on pileus and stipe; pleurocystidia absent.
