Etymology: Erythro: red color, indicating the red tones of the hymenophore; phylloporus: from the lamellate bolete genus Phylloporus, indicating a morphological resemblance of the two genera.


Basidiomes small to mediumsized, stipitatepileate with lamellate hymenophore. Pileus convex to applanate, dry, pruinose or velutinous, subtomentose to faintly squamulose or subfloccose towards the center, orange, deep orange, yellowish red to reddish orange.

Basidiospores broadly ellipsoid, ellipsoid to nearly ovoid, smooth, thinwalled. Pleuro and cheilocystidia present, usually containing yellowish brown pigment, slowly dissolving in KOH. Pileipellis a subcutis to trichoderm, becoming a subcutis when mature. Clamp connections absent.
