Phlebia odontoidea Sheng H. Wu, Acta Bot. Fennica 142: 29. 1990.

 Description: Basidiocarp effuse, adnate, ceraceous or subceraceous, 70-140 µm thick in section (aculei excluded). Hymenial surface Ivory Yellow or Cartridge Buff, odontioid, not cracked; margin concolorous or paler, thinning, pruinose. Aculei separate, 3-5 per mm, at first conical, then cylindrical, 80-500 × 60-120 µm. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae nodose-septate. Subiculum fairly uniform, composed of medullary layer, with rather compact texture, but basal subiculum having a looser texture; hyphae ± horizontal next to substratum, fairly vertical near subhymenium, colorless, indistinct, 1.7-3.5 µm diam., thin-walled. Crystal masses sometimes crowded in subiculum. Hymenial layer with compact texture, thickening; hyphae vertical, agglutinated, narrower than those of subiculum. Cystidia numerous, projecting for up to half their lengths, cylindrical with narrow bases, slightly flexuous, with homogeneous contents, 25-40 × 3.5-7 µm, thinwalled. Basidia clavate, 15.5-18.5 × 5-6 µm, 4-sterigmate. Basidiospores cylindrical or narrowly ellipsoid, with a minute apiculus, smooth, thin-walled, sometimes with oil-drops, (4.8-) 5.2-6 (-6.5) × 2.3-2.8 µm, IKI-, CB-.

 Note: In its odontioid hymenial surface and fairly soft texture, this species resembles Phlebia ryvardenii Hallenberg & Hjortstam; it differs from the latter in (1) not having a densely odontioid hymenial surface, (2) its shorter cystidia, (3) its longer basidiospores, and (4) the absence of swollen basal hyphae.
