Ampulloclitocybe clavipes, commonly known as the club-footed clitocybe, is a species of gilled mushroom from Europe.

Although considered edible, antabuse-like reactions have been reported after consumption of alcohol after eating this mushroom. Though similar to the symptoms from Coprinopsis atramentaria, that species' active agent, coprine, has not been isolated.

It was initially described as Agaricus clavipes by Christiaan Hendrik Persoon in 1801,[2] before German naturalist Paul Kummer transferred it to Clitocybe in 1871. It was moved into the newly created genus Ampulloclitocybe in 2002.[3] Its specific epithet is derived from the Latin terms clava "club", and pes "foot".
