Since the nineteenth century, Myriostoma has been regarded as a monotypic genus with a widespread distribution in north temperate and subtropical regions. However, on the basis of morphological characters and phylogenetic evidence of DNA sequences of the internal transcribed spacer ITS regions and the large subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA gene LSU, four species are now delimited: M. areolatum comb. and stat. nov., M. calongei sp. nov., M. capillisporum comb. and stat. nov., and M. coliforme. Myriostoma coliforme is typified by selecting a lectotype iconotype and a modern sequenced collection as an epitype. The four species can be discriminated by a combination of morphological characters, such as stomatal form, endoperidial surface texture, and basidiospore size and ornamentation.
