Eriksson et al. Corticiaceae of North Europe, vol 6. p. 1215-1218:
“… hymenial side … folded in dichotomously branched gill-like ridges, with uneven-crispate edge; …” for Plicaturopsis crispa
“… hymenial side becoming distinctly and irregularly plicate, but not forming net-like pores” for Plicatura nivea
