Coniferiporia L.W. Zhou & Y.C. Dai 2016, in Zhou, et al., Fungal Biology, 120(8), 988-1001 (2016).

Etymology: Coniferiporia (Lat.): referring to inhabiting gymnosperm trees.

Diagnosis: Basidiocarps annual to perennial, resupinate, inseparable, soft corky and without odor or taste when fresh, becoming corky to fibrous upon drying. Tissues darkening but otherwise unchanged in KOH. Hyphal system monomitic, generative hyphae hyaline to yellowish, thin-to slightly thick-walled, frequently branched, simple septate. Hyphoid setae abundant dark brown, subulate, sharp-pointed, thick-walled with a narrow lumen, originating from the yellowish, slightly thick-walled hyphae, parallel along the tubes, occasionally penetrating into hymenium, sometimes apically encrusted by small rosettes of crystals, several hundreds of mmlong. Hymenial setae absent. Cystidia present; cystidioles absent. Basidiospores hyaline, ellipsoid to subglobose, thin-walled, IKI-, CB- or weakly CB+.
