Veluticeps nakasoneae sp. nov. (Gloeophyllales, Basidiomycota) from tropical China
Yang, Jiao; He, Shuang-Hui
A new species, Veluticeps nakasoneae, is described and illustrated from southern tropical China based on morphological and molecular evidence. The species is characterized by its resupinate basidiocarps, simple-septate generative hyphae, single cystidia, presence of numerous dendrohyphidia in hymenium and subhymenium, large subfusiform to narrowly cylindrical basidiospores, and habit on angiospermous wood. Among species in the genus, V. fusispora is similar to V. nakasoneae but differs in nodose-septate generative hyphae, sparsely branched sclerified hyphae, absence of dendrohyphidia, and fruiting on a native gymnospermous tree in New Zealand.
