Literature :
Ota, Y; Hattori, T; Nakamura, H; Terashima, Y; Lee, S.S; Miyuki, Y; Sotome, K. 2014. Taxonomy and phylogenetic position of Fomitiporia torreyae, a causal agent of trunk rot on Sanbu-sugi, a cultivar of Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) in Japan. Mycologia. 106(1):66-76

Page number : 73
Remarks (internal) : This species is easily distinguished from F. torreyae by the lack of hymenial setae and larger basidiospores. In addition, the distribution range of both species might not overlap. In eastern Asia, F. punctata is widespread in cool temperate to boreal areas while F. torreyae is restricted to warm temperate to subtropical areas.
