Diagnosis: Basidiocarps annual, resupinate, soft when fresh, hard corky upon drying. Hymenophore poroid; pore surface yellow when fresh, straw-coloured when dry; pores angular to irregular; dissepiments thin, lacerate. Margin cottony, thinning out. Hyphal system monomitic; generative hyphae with clamp connections; tissues become red in KOH. Cystidia-like hyphae projecting out of hymenium, cystidioles present. Basidia subclavate to barrel-shaped, bearing four sterigmata and a basal clamp connection. Basidiospores oblong-ellipsoid, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, IKI-, CB-.

Index Fungorum Number: IF815683
