Radulotubus resupinatus

Radulotubus resupinatus Y.C. Dai, S.H. He & C.L. Zhao, in Zhao et al., Nova Hedwigia 103(1-2): 271 (2016)

 

Etymology: Resupinatus (Lat.): referring to resupinate basidiocarps

 

Basidiocarps annual, resupinate, waxy to hygrophanous, without odor or taste when fresh, becoming soft corky to slightly brittle when dry, up to 8 cm long, 4 cm wide, 3 mm thick at center. Pore surface white when fresh, cream to buff when dry, the fresh pores becoming pale brown to brown when bruised, the bruised part becoming greyish brown to brown when dry; pores round to angular, 24 per mm; dissepiments thin, entire to lacerate. Sterile margin narrow, white to cream, slightly fimbriate, up to 1 mm wide. Subiculum cream, membranous, up to 0.5 mm thick. Tubes concolorous with pore surface, brittle, up to 2.5 mm long. Hyphal system monomitic; generative hyphae hyaline, thin- to slightly thick-walled, bearing clamp connections, IKI-, CB-; tissues unchanged in KOH.

 

Basidiospores globose, hyaline, thin-to slightly thick-walled, smooth, usually bearing one guttule and a distinct apiculus, IKI-, CB-, (5–)5.56(–6.5) × (4.5–)55.5 (–6) μm, L = 5.74 μm, W = 5.3 μm, Q = 1.011.09 (n = 120/4). Subiculum Generative hyphae hyaline, thin- to thick-walled, frequently with clamp connections, occasionally branched, more or less regularly arranged, 33.5 μm in diameterTubes Generative hyphae hyaline, thin- to thick-walled, frequently with clamp connections, occasionally branched, 23 μm in diameter. Cystidia and cystidioles absent; basidia distinctly pleural, pyriform to barrel-shaped, with four sterigmata and a basal clamp connection, 1821 × 810 μm; basidioles dominant, in shape similar to basidia, but slightly smaller. Rot type: A white rot.
