This order is the sister group to the Boletales. In a broad sense it included 22 genera and a bit more than 100 species but some species were found to belong instead in Agaricales, Amylocorticiales, Cantharellales, and Polyporales. The position of the Lepidostromataceae was unclear but was recently assigned to its own order.
