Phanerochaete fulva Sheng H. Wu, Mycol. Res. 102: 1129. 1998.

 Description: Basidiocarp resupinate, effuse, adnate, membranaceous, 100-200 μm thick in section. Hymenial surface reddish yellow, darkens in KOH, smooth, cracked; margin thinning, concolorous or paler, filamentous. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae simple-septate. Subiculum composed of a basal layer and a medullary layer. Basal layer up to ca 50 μm thick, with compact texture; medullary layer with loose texture. Subicular hyphae colorless, horizontal and glued together in basal layer, ± vertical towards subhymenium, 3-5 μm diam., thick-walled. Hymenium ± thickening, with dense texture; hyphae colorless, thin-walled. Lamprocystidia numerous, immersed or projecting, subulate, colorless, 40-100 × 6-12 μm (with encrustation), with 0.7-1.7 μm thick walls, bearing several secondary septa. Basidia clavate, 17-25 × 5-6 μm, 4-sterigmate. Basidiospores broadly ellipsoid, smooth, thin-walled, 4.8-5.5 × 3-3.4 μm, IKI-, CB-.

 Note: Phanerochaete fulva resembles P. filamentosa, but has broader basidiospores. Lamprocystidia of this species usually bear several secondary septa, never observed in P. filamentosa.
