This large group of terrestrial, mycorrhizal fungi is typically recognised by the presence of a cortina, which is a veil of silky or cobwebby fibbers that protects the gills of a young mushroom. This collapses as the cap opens in most cases, leaving hairs on the stem or forming a well-defined ring that is then stained brown from spores. They are a very diverse group in shape, size, and colour. The large number of species makes this group difficult to identify.

These are fungi which have lost there ability to forceful eject there spores in stead they rely on insects and birds to eat and cary them off for disperse. Many are brightly coloured and found on or partly beried in the ground some still retain a week stalk but others have even lost this.
