in response to the question “how to differentiate Trametes cubensis from Rigidoporus?”:

“Actually, they are very similar only in the field. They share almost the same color and size, however, Tcubensis has thinner basidiomes. Rigidoporus is rigid when dry, because this the name. Trametes presented trimitic hyphae system with clamps and Rigidoporus is dimitic with simple septa.”
