Podaxis is a genus of secotioid fungi in the family Agaricaceae. Species, which have the appearance of a “stalked-puffball”,
have a worldwide distribution, and tend to be found growing solitary or scattered on sandy soils,
especially in arid regions. Although close to 50 species have been described, it has been argued that many
of them may represent extremes in the natural range of variations found in Podaxis pistillaris. —
