Paxillus

 

a genus of hymenomycetous mushrooms of the group of gill fungi. The best-known species, P. involutus, has a brownish yellow impressed cap measuring 6–20 cm in diameter and having a tightly curved tomentose margin. The gills are slightly separated from the flesh of the cap; the thallus is short and thick. The flesh darkens in air. The mushrooms most commonly grow in groups in sunny birch forests from June to October. Consumption of the mushrooms raw often causes poisoning.

Paxillus MacLeay, 1819 can be recognized by anterior angles of clypeus, in dorsal view, not visible, very reduced, completely under the frons; external tubercles with an acute apex, directed downwards; prosternal process always pentagonal; metasternal disc glabrous and wholly delimited (Reyes-Castillo, 1973).
