Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit] Brief Description: [See More | Edit]

“Fulvifomes, positioned as sistergroup to Phylloporia, is similar by the lack of setae and the occurrence of thickwalled, yellowish and non-dextrinoid basidiospores, which, however, are larger and ellipsoid to subglobose. Basidiocarps of Fulvifomes are different by exhibiting a distinct dimitic hyphal system and a distinct crust on the surface. Based on these features, Kotlaba and Pouzar (1978)⇓ described the Phellinus rimosus complex (=Fulvifomes), including P. badius, P. rimosus and P. robiniae. Dai (1999)⇓ suggests the subgenus Fulvifomes, comprising 19 taxa with or without setae, whereas our data show the group to be strictly without setae.” Mycologia November/December 2002 vol. 94 no. 6 998-1016
