Dai, Yu-Cheng & Bao-Kai Cui. Two new species of Wrightoporia (Basidiomycota, Aphyllophorales) from southern China. Mycotaxon 96: 199 - 206. 2006.

ABSTRACT: Two new species of Wrightoporia, W. casuarinicola and W. unguliformis, are described from southern China, and illustrated descriptions of the two species are supplied. W. casuarinicola was collected on Casuarina from Guangxi Autonomous Region. It has a perennial growth, resupinate basidiocarps, a lilac to vinaceous brown pore surface, simple septate generative hyphae, dextrinoid and weakly cyanophilous skeletal hyphae, and broadly ellipsoid to subglobose, slightly thick-walled, ornamented and amyloid basidiospores. W. unguliformis was collected from Hainan Province. It has perennial, woody hard and ungulate basidiocarps with a distinct rusty brown to dark brown crust; the pore surface is buff to pale brown, and its tube mouths are thick. The skeletal hyphae are dextrinoid and strongly cyanophilous, and its basidiospores are thick-walled, echinulate and amyloid.
