Schizopora flavipora (Cke.) Ryv., Mycotaxon 23: 186. 1985.

 Description: Basidiocarp annual, resupinate, usually developing by the fusion of a number of smaller ones, becoming widely effused, leathery when fresh, becoming corky or tough-fibrous when dried; margin usually sterile, whitish, fimbriate, up to 2 mm wide; pore surface whitish to cream when fresh, discoloring to buff on drying, the pores angular to daedaleoid, 3-5 per mm. Hyphal system monomitic; generative hyphae thin- to thick-walled, often branched, with abundant small clamps, 2-6 μm in diam, some ending in a globose, thin-walled, swollen apex up to 12 μm in diam, others with thick-walled, nonseptate terminal segments that resemble skeletal hyphae, these with wall often thinning toward the apex. Fusoid cystidioles present, scarcely projecting, 3-4 μm in diam. Basidiospores ellipsoid, hyaline, smooth, IKI-, 3.5-5 × 2.5-3.5 μm.
