Agaricales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. Many of the familiar mushrooms and toadstools are found in this order which includes the genera Agaricus, Amanita, Armillaria, Coprinus, Lentinula and Omphalina.
Order of fungi in the phylum Basidiomycota.
Auriculariales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. The members are jelly-like, wood decay fungi characterized by their typically brown colors and their tough, rubbery consistency. They can be distinguished from other jelly fungi by their transversely septate basidia, which are perpendicular to the direction of growth.
Boletales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. Members of the order are characterized by having pores or tubes insted of gills. The order includes the genera Boletus, Suillus and Serpula.
Cantharellales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. It includes fungi of widely different appearance but which have been identified as closely related through molecular phylogeny (studies of their DNA). The families in this order include Aphelariaceae, Botryobasidiaceae, Cantharellaceae, Clavulinaceae and Hydnaceae.
Ceratobasidiales is an order of basidiomycete fungi. The telemorphs, which have fruitbodies and produce spores are listed here, but many of the anamorphs, which do not reproduce sexually, are serious plant pathogens.
The order Cystofilobasidiales contains Basidiomycetous yeasts that have a lichenous sexual form or teleomorph and a yeast-like asexual form or anamorph.
Dacrymycetales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. Many members are jelly-like and cause wood-decay fungi. They can be distinguished from other jelly fungi by their aseptate basidia which are the shape of tuning forks.
The order Filobasidiales contains Basidiomycetous yeasts that have a club fungus-type sexual form or teleomorph and a yeast-like asexual form or anamorph.

Order of fungi in the phylum Basidiomycota.
Order of basidiomycete fungi.
Hymenochaetales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi which have few uniting morphological charecteristics, but which have been identified as closely related through molecular phylogeny (studies of their DNA). Some are polypores and others agaric species.
Order of basidiomycete fungi.
Phallales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. Members include the earth stars, and the stinkhorns in the genus Phallus.
Polyporales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. Many of the members are bracket fungi, and the order includes the genera Polyporus, Pleurotus and others.
The Russulales are an order of basidiomycotic fungi, which include the agaric genera Russula and Lactarius and their polyporoid and corticioid relatives. Russuloid agarics represent an independent evolutionary line of agarics, not directly related to the Agaricales.
Order of fungi in the phylum Basidiomycota.
Thelephorales is an order of basidiomycete fungi which have few uniting morphological charecteristics but which have been identified as closely related through molecular phylogeny (studies of their DNA). Some are tooth fungi but others have varying characteristics.
Order of fungi in the Basidiomycota.
Tremellales are an order of basidiomycotic fungi. Most are jelly fungi, often with extensive convoluted surfaces. Members of the genus Tremella are mostly parasitic on wood decay fungi such as Stereum or Aleurodiscus. They can be distinguished from other jelly fungi by their cruciate-septate basidia (vertically septate, parallel to their direction of growth).
Tulasnellales is an order of basidiomycete fungi which often form mycorrhizal relationships with green plants.
Uredinales is an order of basidiomycotic fungi. Many of the members of this order are rusts which are important pathogens of plants including cereals.
Ustilaginales is an order of fungi. Most of its members are smuts which are parasites of monocots and infect some of the world's most important crop plants.
