Bandala, Victor M. & Leticia Montoya. Crepidotus from Mexico: New records and type studies. Mycotaxon 89: 1-30. 2004.

ABSTRACT: Crepidotus albidus, C. calolepis, C. croceitinctus, C. latifolius (var. latifolius and var. praelatifolius), and C. palmarum are reported from montane broad-leaved forests of the Sierra Madre Oriental of eastern Mexico. Crepidotus calolepis and C. palmarum have also been collected in a tropical forest south of the Gulf of Mexico, with C. calolepis found at additional sites in the country. New data resulting from reexamination of five type collections as well as observations made in fresh material support the taxonomic interpretation of C. calolepis var. heterocystis, C. calolepioides and C. molliformis as synonyms of C. calolepis, and C. latisporus var. veraecrucis to be conspecific with C. palmarum. Crepidotus praelatifolius is supported as a variety of C. latifolius. Observations made on samples of some members of the stirps Mollis sensu Singer are discussed. Descriptions, illustrations, and discussions are provided for all taxa.
