Dendrocorticiopsis Sheng H. Wu, C.L. Wei & S.H. He 2022, in Wei et al., MycoKeys 90, 19-30 (2022).

Etymology: Dendrocorticiopsis refers to the morphological resemblance to Dendrocorticium.

Diagnosis: Dendrocorticiopsis differs from other genera by having strictly resupinate basidiomata, ivory hymenphore, a compact texture, a monomitic hyphal system, nodoseseptate hyphae, encrusted cystidia, dendrohyphidia and ellipsoid to ovoid basidiospores. Basidiomata resupinate, effused, adnate, membranaceous. Hymenial surface brownish ivory, grayish ivory to lilac ivory, smooth. Hyphal system monomitic; generative hyphae nodose-septate, colorless, slightly thick- to thick-walled. Subiculum uniform, with compact texture, usually with crystal masses; hyphae fairly horizontal. Hymenial layer thickening, with compact texture, usually with oily materials, hyphae more or less vertical. Dendrohyphidia numerous, thick-walled toward base, colorless. Cystidia clavate, apically with resinous materials. Basidia clavate to subclavate, 4-sterigmata, thick-walled toward base. Basidiospores ellipsoid to ovoid, sometimes broadly ellipsoid, smooth, thin-walled or occasionally slightly thick-walled, negative in Melzers reagent, acyanophilous.
