Campanophyllum is proposed as a new genus name to accommodate Lentinus proboscideus Fries, based on morphological and molecular data from collections made in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Mexico. A neotype specimen is designated. The taxonomic circumscription of the new genus is compared to those of a wide array of agaric genera having cyphelloid, pseudostipitate members. Based on ribosomal large subunit DNA data, Campanophyllum appears to be placed in the “/gloeostereae” clade where it is nested with Cheimonophyllum, Chondrostereum and Gloeostereum.
