Inocybe lanuginosa
Scientific classification
Kingdom: Fungi
Division: Basidiomycota
Class: Agaricomycetes
Order: Agaricales
Family: Inocybaceae
Jülich (1981)
Type genus
(Fr.) Fr. (1863)


The Inocybaceae are a family of fungi in the order Agaricales. According to a 2008 estimate, the family contains 13 genera and 821 species.[1] Members of this family have a widespread distribution in tropical and temperate areas.[2]


The type genus of the Inocybaceae, Inocybe, had traditionally been placed within the Cortinariaceae family.[3][4] Despite this, Jülich placed the genus in its own family, the Inocybaceae.[5] Later, the Cortinariaceae were shown to be polyphyletic.[6][7] Additionally, phylogenetic analyses of RPB1, RPB2 and nLSU-rDNA regions from a variety of Inocybe and related taxa would support Jülich's recognition of Inocybe at the family level.[8]
