Synopsis top ↑

The genera Bankera, Hydnellum, Phellodon, and Sarcodon are common members of higher fungi from the southern Appalachian Mountains. Approximately thirty-one species from the four genera were identified from this geographical area.
Data obtained through macro- and microscopic examination of the sporophores, were compared with observations on associated tree species and the presence or absence of three terphenylquinones. The results from this study indicated that the data from the associated tree species and the chemical analysis were important in determination of the species, but they must be correlated with the macro- and microscopic characters of the basidiocarps.
