Abstract

Wood-inhabiting resupinate polypore fungi are abundant and widely distributed in tropical forests of Thailand. In our survey, Ceriporia cystidiata and Macrohyporia dictyopora were found in Thailand for the first time. Identification was based on morphological characteristics and DNA sequences of internal transcribed spacers and large subunit (LSU) nuclear ribosomal RNA genes. The initial phylogenetic analyses showed that C. cystidiata clustered as a sister clade to C. lacerata, and M. dictyopora was placed firmly in the phlebioid clade.
