Two species of fossil mushrooms that are similar to extant Tricholomataceae are described from Cretaceous and Miocene ambers. Archaeomarasmius leggetti gen. et sp. nov., from mid-Cretaceous amber of New Jersey, resembles the extant genera Marasmius and Marasmiellus. Two fruiting bodies of Archaeomarasmius were found. One consists of a complete pileus with stipe, and the other consists of a fragment of a pileus. The latter was accidentally exposed, and zxsubsequently was used for molecular… Expand
