Furtadoa Costa-Rezende, Robledo & Drechsler-Santos 2017, in Costa-Rezende et al., Persoonia -Molecular Phylogeny and Evolution of Fungi, 39(1), 254-269 (2017)

Etymology: Named in honor of Dr. João Salvador Furtado, due to his contribution to the taxonomy of Ganodermataceae.

Diagnosis: Similar to Amauroderma, differing by presentin a monomitic context. Basidiomata annual, stipe pleuropodal to pseudomesopodal, soft when fresh, light and fragile when dried, pileus circular to almost flabelliform or funnel-shaped. Pilear surface dull, glabrous greyish brown, azonate. Context white to pale brown, homogenous. Tubes slightly darker than context. Pore surface pale brown. Pores angular, sometimes radially elongated. Dissepiments thin, entire to lacerate. Stipe yellowish brown, finely tomentose, solid to hollow, context homogeneous, pale brown. Hyphal system dimitic. Context composed of clamped to simpleseptate generative hyphae, thin to slightly thick-walled, some distinctly wider, with a swollen apex. Trama of tubes composed of clamped generative and arboriform skeletal hyphae. Cystidia and cystidioles not seen. Basidia clavate, with four sterigmata. Basidiospores subglobose to ellipsoid, hyaline, double walled, with ornamentation as endosporic projections column-like, IKI-.
