Porodaedalea Murrill 1905, in Dai, Y.C., Fungal diversity, 45, 131-343 (2010)

Diagnosis: Basidiocarps perennial, effused-reflexed to pileate, solitary or imbricate, hard corky to woody hard. Pileal surface rust-brown and strigose when actively growing, become dark grey and velutinate or crusted with age, usually concentrically sulcate with narrow zones. Poroid surface rust-brown to umber-brown; pores circular to angular, sometimes labyrinthine. Context hard corky, duplex when juvenile, lower part dense, mostly separated from the upper trichoderm by a thin black line. Hyphal system dimitic, generative hyphae frequent in trama, skeletal hyphae dominant in context and trama, occasionally septate. Setae frequent, ventricose to subulate, originating from subhymenial or tramal hyphae, occasionally embedded in trama, and sometimes seen at dissepiment edges, dark brown, thick-walled; cystidia absent; basidia clavate, usually distinctly longer than basidioles. Spores subglobose, broadly ellipsoid to ovoid, slightly to fairly thick-walled, IKI, moderately CB+. On gymnosperms, causing a white rot.
