Cerarioporia F. Wu, L.W. Zhou & J. Si 2016, in Wu et al., Phytotaxa, 280, 55-62 (2016).

Etymology: Cerarioporia (Lat.): referring to the wax tubes of the species.

Diagnosis: Basidiocarps annual, resupinate, waxy when fresh drying resinous. Pore surface white to cream when fresh, drying dirty cinnamon. Subiculum cinnamon very thin to almost lacking, buff, resinous. Tube layer concolorous with the pore surface. Hyphal system dimitic; generative hyphae bearing clamp connections; skeletal hyphae dominant; thick-walled and encrusted hymenial cystidia present. Basidiospores hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, fusiform, IKICB–. Differs from other genera of polypores by the combination of a resupinate, waxy to resinous fruiting body with very thin subiculum, a dimitic hyphal system with clamp connections on generative hyphae, frequent presence of thick-walled cystidia, hyaline, thin-walled and fusiform basidiospores, and causing most probably a white rot.
