Abstract

We report the discovery of a fossil agaricoid homobasidiomycete from Dominican amber (ca 15-20 Ma). Aureofungus yaniguaensis appears to be a member of the euagarics clade, but its precise taxonomic placement is obscure. This is the fourth known fossil agaric and the third from Dominican amber.
