Queletia is a genus of fungi in the family Agaricaceae. The genus was described by Elias Magnus Fries in 1872. Fruit bodies of Queletia species are roughly spherical with a stipe-like base. They have a thin outer skin (peridium) and a harder inner skin that breaks into small pieces with age. The genus is named after French mycologist Lucien Quélet.
