Rhizopogonaceae are a family of fungi in the order Boletales.[1] The family, first named and described by botanists Ernst Albert Gäumann and Carroll William Dodge in 1928,[2] contains 2 genera and 151 species.[3] The genus Fevansia, formerly thought to belong in the Rhizopogonaceae, was found to belong in the Albatrellaceae in a molecular phylogenetics study.[4]
