(, which James linked on Cladomeris umbellatus, does seem like the best primary resource for this name right now, contrary to my “Deprecated” comments from before.

See “Lentinoid and Polyporoid Fungi, Two Generic Conglomerates Containing Important Medicinal Mushrooms in Molecular Perspective” (Zmitrovich & Kovalenko 2016).

Edit: What I said before was too harsh. C. umbellata is phylogenetically distinct from Polyporus sensu stricto but it’s not far off. I don’t see why they shouldn’t be lumped but there seems to be a very solid splitting trend by polyporaceologists.
