 Agaricales
Species of Agaricales are widespread and diverse on land ranging from desert, grassland, forests, tundra, and shorelines in tropical, temperate, and arctic-alpine habitats.
Nevertheless, it appears reasonable that the most recent common ancestor of the Agaricales was probably a saprotroph or parasite with uninucleate, hyaline spores with a nodulose spore hilum, perhaps similar to early-diverging lineages of the Atheliales and Boletales, two groups most closely related to the Agaricales.
The Agaricales is one of three clades, together with the Atheliales and Boletales, that appear to form one of the more derived groups of Agaricomycetes (Binder et al.

 AGARICALES
The arrow and question mark indicate that the node for monophyly of the Agaricales is not supported above the 50% of bootstrap frequencies and that there is no single morphological synapomorphy to define the clade.
Mushrooms and their allies (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) are simultaneously the most familiar and the most mysterious of fungi: these conspicuous and diverse organisms are characterized by a wide variety of fruit body forms and ecological habits.
The Tricholomataceae, the largest family of Agaricales, is paraphyletic (spread across Groups A, C, D, G, I pro parte, and J to N).

They range from the ubiquitous common mushroom to the deadly destroying angel and the hallucinogenic fly agaric to the bioluminescent jack-o-lantern mushroom.
Some notable fungi with gill-like structures, such as chanterelles, have long been recognised as being substantially different from usual Agaricales.
Also, some other quite distinctive fungi, the puffballs and the Beefsteak fungus have been recently been shown lie within the Agaricales.

 Fungi Collections: The Botany Department at The Field Museum
The greatest strengths of the collection are the Agaricales sensu lato (e.g., mushrooms, boletes, false-truffles, puffballs, chantrelles, tooth fungi, and coral fungi) and the lichenized Ascomycetes of the Western Hemisphere.
The collection is especially significant in that it is one of only two active, large centers for Neotropical Agaricales in North America, and one of only a handful of herbaria active in such studies in the Western Hemisphere.
Other important holdings of Agaricales include the 10,000 specimens of E. Harper, which represents one of the preeminent collections of fungi from the central Great Lakes region.

 The Gilled Mushrooms ("Agaricales") (MushroomExpert.Com)
Recent DNA research has shown that the simple fact that a mushroom has gills does not necessarily relate it to other mushrooms with gills (for more on this topic, see What, If Anything, Is a Gilled Mushroom?).
Thus the "Agaricales," the taxonomic order used for centuries to hold mushrooms with gills, turns out not to include species of Russula and Lactarius, for example, but does include the Bird's Nest Fungi and many Puffballs.
But you can't exactly test the DNA of every mushroom you want to identify, and identification keys based on actual, natural relationships would be virtually useless to anyone without access to the technology of molecular biology.

 Natural Perspective: Order Agaricales
While some members vary slightly from this formula (for example the Boletes have pores instead of gills underneath the cap) the Agaricales stereotype is so strong that people often exclaim "That's a mushroom?!" when shown members of just about any other mushroom order.
Here is a King Bolete (Porcini, Cepes, Boletus edulis) held by the author.
As you can see, even though the Agaricales all follow the same general form, they still come in an impressive variety of shapes, colors, sizes, and habitats.
