Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

See for a summary (including clades) of A. Justo & D.S. Hibbett. 2011. Phylogenetic classification of Trametes (Basidiomycota, Polyporales) based on a five-marker dataset. Taxon 60(6): 1567-1583, which proposes:

“all members of the trametoid clade should be classified under one single generic name (Trametes).”
