Coriolopsis Murrill 1905, in Cui, et al., Fungal Diversity 97, 137392 (2019)

Diagnosis: Basidiocarps annual to perennial, pileate. Pilei yellowish to brownish or blackish brown. Pore surface yellowish to brownish or blackish brown; pores round to angular; dissepiments thin, entire. Context yellowish to brown. Hyphal system trimitic; generative hyphae bearing clamp connections; skeletal hyphae yellowish to brown, dextrinoid or not, CB+ or CB–. Basidiospores cylindrical to ellipsoid, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, IKI, CB–.

Morphologically, Coriolopsis is similar to the genus Trametes Fr., from which it was artificially separated mainly by its brownish basidiocarps and colored hyphae, these two genera are similar in hyphal system and basidiospores (Ryvarden 1991). Corner treated Coriolopsis as a synonymy of Trametes (Corner 1989). Recently, phylogenetic analyses indicated that Coriolopsis is polyphyletic within the trametoid species (Justo & Hibbett 2011), but the taxonomic position of Coriolopsis remains in doubt. Coriolopsis is a worldwide genus and has a wide distribution in tropical to subtropical areas.
