Agar'icum, Agar'icus. A genus of plants in the Linnaean system, some of which are edible, others poisonous. It is supposed to have been so called from Agaria, a region of Sarmatia.-Dioscorides. Among the edible varieties of the Boletus, the following are the chief :-1. The Agar'icus edu'lis seu Arven'sis seu Sylvat'icus seu Campes'tris, (F.) Agaric comestible et champignon de couche. 2. The Agar'icus odora'tus, (F.) Mousseron. The most common poisonous varieties are the Agar'icus neca'tor, (F.) Agaric meurtrier; and, 2. The Agaricus acris, (F.) Agaric acre; besides the Auranite, a sub-genus, which includes several species. One of the most delicate is the Agaricus Aurantiacus, but care must be taken not to confound it with the A. Pseudo-aurantiacus, which is very poisonous. The A. aurantiacus is called, in French, Oronge. See Poisons, Table of.
