Cavara 1900[1]

Arcangeliella is a genus of gasteroid fungi in the Russulaceae family. Taxonomic and phylogenetic research has shown that it is very likely a synonym of Lactarius.[2][3] The type species Arcangeliella borziana was moved to Lactarius in 2003.[4] However, the genus name is still in use for several species for which new combinations have not yet been proposed.[3][5]
