Abstract

A new species of Hymenochaetaceae, Phylloporia resupinatus, and two new species of Polyporaceae, Coriolopsis antleroides and Nigroporus stipitatus, are described and illustrated from material collected in the Mbalmayo Forest Reserve, Cameroon. C. antleroides is characterised by antler-like, digitate to coralloid erect protuberances on the pileus surface and thick-walled basidiospores, N. stipitatus closely related to N. vinosus is distinctly stipitate, or forms at least a short lateral stipe, whereas P. resupinatus found on dead bark of Entandrophragma cylindricum, has a resupinate habit with dimitic hyphal system. Keys to species of Nigroporus and Phylloporia are provided.
