Hygrophorus is a genus of agarics (gilled mushrooms) in the family Hygrophoraceae. All species are ground-dwelling and ectomycorrhizal (forming an association with living trees) and are typically found in woodland. Around 100 species are currently recognized worldwide. Fruit bodies of several species are considered edible and are sometimes offered for sale in local markets.
