The Tricholomataceae is a large family of mushrooms in the Agaricales. It consists of some 75 genera many of which are monotypic or with very few species.

The larger genera (
Clitocybe, Tricholoma) are well known as members have worldwide distribution. Members of these genera are generally ectomycorrhizal and found in woodlands.

Spore colours vary from white to pale yellow and pinkish.

The family is probably a heterogeneous mix and may need to be separated.
Lepista is sometimes considered a junior synonym of Clitocybe, but is still considered a valid genus in 10th edition of Dictionary of Fungi (2008).
