Certain taxonomic problems of long standing within the heterobasidiomycete complex are reviewed and recommendations for a rearrangement in the classification of tremellaceous fungi (sensu lato) are suggested whereby the subclass Heterobasidiomycetidae is modified to exclude the Dacrymycetaceae. A new subclass, Metabasidiomycetidae, is erected and includes the holobasidiaceous Dacrymycetaceae and Ceratobasidiaceae as well as the Tulasnellaceae, the latter embracing such genera as Metabourdotia and Pseudotulasnella, which have incompletely divided basidia. The Ceratobasidiaceae as newly constituted, includes besides Ceratobasidium the genera Oliveonia, Thanatephorus, and Uthatobasidium.
