Rhodocybe is a small genus of small and medium sized brownish-pink spored mushrooms. Rhodocybes are saprophytic and most grow on the ground, but some are found on wood. Most are drab in appearance, though some have vivid colors. The cap shape can be convex, plane, or depressed. The gills usually have adnate to decurrent attachment, rarely notched and the stems of the mushrooms in this genus are highly variable, always lacking a veil or vulva. The spores are flesh colored to salmon to brownish pink. Microscopically the spores are angular when viewed on end; when viewed from the side the spores are bumpy.
Very little is known about the edibility of Rhodocybes.
Rhodocybes can be confused with Entoloma or Clitopilus, and can be distinguished by examining microscopic characteristics.
About 20 species of Rhodocybe have been documented in Europe.
Rhodocybe is divided into four subsections - Rhodocybe, Rhodophana, Decurrentes, and Rufobrunneua.
