List of Agaricales families

List of Agaricales families

The Agaricales are an order of fungi in the class Agaricomycetes (division Basidiomycota). It is the largest group of mushroom-forming fungi, and includes more than 400 genera and over 13,000 species.[1] Molecular phylogenetics analyses of ribosomal DNA sequences has led to advances in our understanding of the Agaricales, and substantially revised previous assessments of families and genera.[2] The following families are in the Agaricales, according to the 10th edition of the Dictionary of the Fungi (2008)[1] with some additions.
