THELEPHORALES order

This order is represented by two families here: the Thelephoraceae and the Bankeraceae. They include toothed fungi like species of Bankera, Boletopsis,  Hynellum, Phellodon and Sarcodon as well as sturdy fan or vase-shaped mushrooms like the Thelephora species. Notice that the Hydnums, which are edible and more closely related to chanterelles, are not included among the genera depicted here. Very few of the Hydnellums are considered suitable for the cooking pot or pan.
