DescriptionFries (1821) established Tribe xxii, Pholiota of Agaricus, for many of the species here placed in the genus Pholiota. The history of the genus may be said to start from this publication since it is the official starting date for the nomenclature of agarics. Although the Greek word Pholiota means scale, some glabrous species such as Agaricus caperatus were admitted to the group. He included sixteen species, some of which (e.g., P. aurivella, P. adiposa, P. flammans, P. squarrosa and P. mutabilis) are still included.
