Invalid classification (here). Current accepted name is basidiomycetes.

The term was applied to a natural group classed in earlier systems as "true basidiomycetes".

The hymenomycetes were a large, important and heterogeneous group. Their basic characteristic was that each exposes its hymenium (the fertile layer of basidia) before the spores have completed maturing. Hymenomycetes included the coral, tooth and leather, pore, and gill fungi.
