Name: Trametella gallica
Author: (Fr.) Teixeira
Citation: Revista Brasileira de Botânica 9 (1): 44 (1986)
Deprecated Synonyms: Coriolopsis gallica (Fr.) Ryvarden
Basidiomata pileate, annual, broadly sessile, up to 7 cm wide × 10 cm long × 2.5 cm thick; pileus semicircular or elongated, often imbricate, corky to tough; pileus surface densely hirsute to hispid, brown, pale brown, becom- ing dirty grey, sometimes zonate; context thin, rarely up to 1 cm thick, yel- lowish brown to dark brown, initially staining black in koh but fading; tubes up to 1.5 cm deep, walls near white to near grey, trama brown; pore surface greyish brown to grey; pores typically angular and 0.3–1 per millimetre, some radially elongated and averaging 1 mm wide, edges thin.
Generative hyphae 2.0–4.5 μm diameter with clamp connections; skeletal hyphae 2.5–6.0 μm diameter, walls golden brown, binding hyphae woven, 2.5–4.5 μm diameter, walls pale yellowish brown; basidiospores cylindrical, 10–16 × 3–5 μm.
Notes: Both C. gallica and C. trogii occur on black cottonwood (Populus balsamifera ssp. trichocarpa) stumps and slash. Coriolopsis trogii is paler in colour with the pore surface ochreous buff, and tubes and context white.
“With the inclusion of the generic type (Coriolopsis polyzona) in Trametes the name Coriolopsis becomes a synonym of Trametes. A change of type species could be proposed to keep the name Coriolopsis for the C. gallica group. Alternatively, the name Funalia Pat. could be adopted for the C. gallica group but no molecular data are available for the type species of Funalia, viz. Polyporus mons-veneris Jungh. (= Trametes leonina (Klotzsch) Imazeki, = Funalia leonina (Klotzsch) Pat.). Morphological characters of F. leonina, especially the spore length above 10 µm and the strigose pileus (Ryvarden & Johansen, 1980), suggest a relationship with the C. gallica group. The generic name Trametella Pinto-Lopes, typified by Trametes hispida (= C. gallica) is also available. Molecular data for Funalia leonina are critical for making a final decision for this group of species.” Justo, A. and D.S. Hibbett. 2011.
