Niemelaea

Niemelaea Zmitr., Ezhov & Khimich 2015, in Zmitrovich et al., Agriculture & Forestry, 61(4), 23-31. (2015).

Etymology: The genus is named of honor Prof. Tuomo Niemelä a great Finnish polyporologist, who described the Ceriporiopsis balaenae and find after heating a weak amyloid reaction in basal hyphae of this species.

Diagnosis: Basidiomes resupinate, porioid, annual, with ceraceous tubular hymenophore having rather large, thin-walled angular pores. Hyphal system monomitic. Hyphae of phanerochaetoid appearance, with large oculate clamps tube trama hyphae having diverticulate growth pattern and represented both hyaline and refractive elements. The hyphal walls are prominent, but not thickened, basically inamyloid (seemingly amyloid in the subiculum after heating) and acyanophilous. Cystidia none. Basidia clavate, with weakly expressed medial constriction, basically up to 20 μm, 4-spored, with large basal clamp. Basidiospores widely ellipsoid, with homogeneous refractive contents, with prominent smooth walls (imitating slightly thick-walled), inamyloid, acyanophilous.
