This paper presents additional anatomical descriptions of T. radiosa, T. cenereoumbrina and T. punicea based on their holotype. For each species, original iconographies and anatomical features are presented and discussed in details. Similarities and differences between closest species are highlighted. ITS rDNA sequenceś similarities and phylogenetic relationship between T. radiosa and Thelephora terrestris are reported. This paper confirms the presence of skeletals and binding-like hyphae on the rhizomorphs of T. punicea.
