The family Hygrophoraceae (Agaricales) includes some of the most beautiful examples of gilled fungi. Many species are brilliantly coloured and their shapes are exquisitely symmetrical. For this reason, species are frequently noticed in the field. Most terrestrial habitats support one or more species of Hygrophoraceae, and their abundance and diversity increases with the availability of moisture. Suitable habitats include all types of forest and woodland, as well as grassland, heath, swamps and sand-dunes.
