Thanks for your comment and for the reference.
In fact, I have no specific literature on Aphyllophorales. As you can see my guess was Antrodia albida, that I saw to have larger and different shaped spores. I didn’t check other species of Antrodia, because I have no checklist and don’t know what species can exist here. On the other hand, this specimen also resembles S. paradoxa and I saw that the spores are within the values for this species. Therefore, I believed to have identified it. If you will make that search on the book by Ryvarden, please pass your conclusions to me.

do you have a copy of this?


I would highly recommend buying one before they go extinct (NHBS is also selling them, but for a much higher price). when I have my copy in front of me, I would like to compare your measurements with those of whatever Antrodia spp. Ryvarden includes, as that is what the macromorphology reminds me of here.

Microscopy added.
