Camarophyllus is a genus of mushrooms in the Hygrophoraceae. Members of Camarophyllus are distinguished from other members of the Hygrophoraceae by their white to pale orange to violaceous coloration and fully decurrent lamellae of their fruiting bodies and by their interwoven lamellar trama.
This genus is recognized by some modern authorities and not by others. Hesler and Smith (1963) and Largent (1985) consigned it to sectional rank, Hygrophorus section Camarophyllus, though Largent (1988) later recognized its generic status. Boertmann (1996) treats these species as part of Hygrocybe. Bon (1984) referred to this group as Cuphophyllus, however, this name is regarded as a synonym of Camarophyllus, with the latter name taking priority.
