A single species is referred to this genus in New Zealand, C. rimutaka. Macroscopically it is Collybia-like, and common as a saprobe on soil.
Four species were placed in Collybiopsis by Horak (1971), but only one remains. Following the key of Horak (1971) the genus was distinguished from Collybia by the presence of cheilocystidia on the gill edge, a concept not widely accepted today.
