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

Etymology: Cystidiata (Lat.): referring to the presence of cystidia of the species.

Description: Basidiocarps annual, resupinate, easily separable from substrate, waxy and without odour and taste when fresh, drying resinous, up to 10 cm long, 5 cm wide and 4 mm thick at centre. Pore surface white to cream when fresh, pinkish buff with age, drying dirty cinnamon; pores mostly (round) to angular, 23 per mm; dissepiments thin, lacerate. Subiculum cinnamon buff, resinous, very thin to almost lacking, around 0.1 mm thick. Tube layer concolorous with the pore surface, resinous, up to 3.9 mm long.Hyphal system dimitic; generative hyphae infrequent, bearing clamped; skeletal hyphae dominant, IKI, CB;tissue unchanged in KOH. Subiculum generative hyphae infrequent, hyaline, thin- to slightly thick-walled, occasionally branched, 35.5 μm in diam.; skeletal hyphae dominant, thick-walled with a narrow to medium lumen, occasionally branched, flexuous, interwoven, 47 μm in diam. Tubes tramal generative hyphae infrequent, hyaline, thin- to slightly thick-walled, rarely branched, 35 μm in diam.; skeletal hyphae dominant, thick-walled with a narrow to wide lumen, occasionally branched, more or less straight, gelatinous, interwoven, 36 μm in diam. Hymenium cystidia abundant, ventricose, hyaline, thick-walled, apically encrusted, 2836 × 1216 μm; basidia clavate, hyaline, thin-walled, with four sterigmata and a clamp connection at the base, 2837 × 67 μm; basidioles in shape similar to basidia, distinctly shorter than basidia; basidiospores fusiform, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, IKI, CB, 79(–10) × (3–)3.54.5(–5) μm, L = 8.37 μm, W = 3.97 μm, Q = 2.22.69 (n = 60/2).
