Ghobad-Nejhad, Masoomeh. A new species and new combinations in the corticioid genus Gloiothele Basidiomycota. Mycotaxon 110: 261–270. 2009.

ABSTRACT: A new corticioid fungus with smooth, globose, amyloid spores is described. Gloiothele ventricosa sp. nov. is characterized by its smooth hymenophore, ventricose gloeocystidia, globose to subglobose basidiospores with amyloid walls, and numerous hyphidia. The affinities to some other species in the genus and related genera are discussed and illustrations are given. Examination of the type specimen of Gloiothele torrendii suggests a placement in Leptocorticium, and the new combination Leptocorticium torrendii is proposed. Gloeocystidiellum orientale is resurrected and the new combination Gloiothele orientalis is proposed. A lectotype for Flavophlebia sulfureoisabellina is designated.

KEYWORDS: Amylofungus, Gloiothele globosa, lectotypification, taxonomy, Vesiculomyces
