Ceriporia amazonica (Phanerochaetaceae, Basidiomycota), a new species from the Brazilian Amazonia, and C. albobrunnea, a new record to Brazil

Adriene Mayra da Silva Soares, Helen Maria Pontes Sotão, Leif Ryvarden, Tatiana Batista Gibertoni


Ceriporia amazonica sp. nov. is described and illustrated from a basidioma collected in northern Brazilian Amazonia. It is characterized by a salmon pore surface when fresh and by basidiospores that are among the smallest in the genus. In addition, C. albobrunnea is reported as new to Brazil and a key to the species of Ceriporia recorded in the Neotropics is updated.
