A new genus and species of polypore, Aurantiopileus mayanensis, is described from Central America based on a visually striking collection made in the cloud forests of the Maya Mountains in Belize. Phylogenetic analysis using nLSU sequences and distinctive morphological characters support the erection of a new genus to accommodate this species. Two Asian species formerly placed in Gloeoporus are also considered to be members of this new genus and the new combinations are provided, along with a key to the three taxa now placed in Aurantiopileus. © 2010 Pacific Northwest Fungi Project.

Vuilleminia is a basidiomycete genus the species of which have resupinate, corticioid fruiting bodies. It is apparently a North Hemisphere genus, and the majority of its species are distributed in Europe and western Asia. In North America, there are two reports of Vuilleminia comedens. Detailed study of North American specimens and comparisons with additional collections led to the conclusion that they belong to a new lineage named Vuilleminia erastii sp. nov., whose distribution extends from western North America to East Asia, Siberia, and Finland. The species is recognized by the decorticating fruiting bodies with preference for species of Betulaceae in the boreal zone, relatively small allantoid basidiospores, and little-developed cystidia with apical appendix. © 2011 The Mycological Society of Japan and Springer.

A description of Balansia hypoxylon, based primarily upon relatively recent Canadian collections from 1981 and 1983, is presented. Because B. hypoxylon is known in Canada from only 11 collections it is perceived as being rare. The range of the fungus in Canada is extended from Nova Scotia into southeastern Ontario. This note, hopefully, will encourage surveys to define the northern limit of the fungus and determine whether it is rare in Canada or simply overlooked. © 2011 Pacific Northwest Fungi Project.

This is the first report of Caripia montagnei in the United States. The collection is described and illustrated, and compared with prior descriptions of the fungus. © 2011 Pacific Northwest Fungi Project. All rights reserved. Source

A new species of Inonotus is proposed because it has a unique combination of morphological characters. No other species of the Hymenochaetaceae has all of these features (1) a pileate basidioma, (2) a duplex context, (3) large, pigmented, thick-walled basidiospores, (4) tramal setal hyphae, and (5) hymenial setae. The generic placement of the fungus is discussed and several similar species are differentiated from it. © 2011 Pacific Northwest Fungi Project. All rights reserved. Source
