Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

“Laetiporus squalidus is described as a new species; it is distinguished by effused reflexed basidioma with numerous small and broadly attached pilei, cream to pale brown when fresh to light ochraceous after dry upper surface and ellipsoid to broadly ellipsoid basidiospores. Phylogenetic analysis with ITS and nLSU regions corroborate the position and identity of this species. Furthermore, L. gilbertsonii, a Pan-American species, is recorded for first time from Brazil, based on ITS region anda more accurate analysis of morphological characteristics.”
