The Marasmiaceae are a family of basidiomycete fungi which have white spores. They mostly have a tough stipe and the capability of shrivelling up during a dry period and later recovering. The widely consumed edible fungi Lentinula edodes, the Shiitake mushroom, Flammulina velutipes the Enokitake and Marasmius oreades, the fairy ring mushroom are members, as well as the prolific Armellaria, Honey fungus. The Madagascan Favolaschia calocera or orange pore fungus, is now an invasive species in New Zealand.
