Honey fungus Armillaria mellea, photographed by Júlio Reis.

Belongs within: Agaricales.
Contains: Tricholoma, Mycenaceae.

The Tricholomataceae is a family of ectomycorrhizal mushroom-producing fungi, found in coniferous and broadleaved forests. Members of this group include the white rot-producing honey fungus Armillaria, an individual of which in Oregon has been described as the world's largest known organism.

Characters (from Cannon & Kirk 2007): Basidiomata pileate and stipitate, usually large and sturdy, the cap viscid or not, glabrous to fibrillose or scaly, the stipe central, fleshy or fibrillose, veil absent (rarely with a web-like partial veil), often with a fleshy annular ring. Hyphal system monomitic, hyphae often with pigment-encrusted walls, not staining in iodine, clamp connections present or absent, cystidia usually absent. Hymenium lamellate, the gills pale, often sinuate. Basidia small, clavate, with 2 or 4 sterigmata. Basidiospores generally small, variously shaped (globose, ellipsoidal, fusiform or angular), hyaline or creamish, thin-walled, smooth, germ pore absent, very rarely staining in iodine.
