Although Inonotus linteus complex is placed in the genus Inonotus, its perennial basidiocarps with a dimitic hyphal system, at least in the trama, distinguish the complex from other species in the genus, which have an annual habit and a monomitic hyphal system. The species number of Inonotus linteus complex has been increased in China and tropical America in recent publications. However, whether species in this complex belong to Inonotus has not specifically been addressed. To explore the… 
Neomensularia duplicata gen. et sp. nov. (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota) and two new combinations
TLDR
Phylogenetic inferences based on 28S and ITS sequence data confirm their affinities with N. duplicata and result in the proposal of new combinations, Neomensularia crocitincta and N. kanehirae combs.
Phylloporia minutipora and P. radiata spp. nov. (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota) from China and a key to worldwide species of Phylloporia
TLDR
Nine herbarium specimens from China, fitting the morphological concept of Phylloporia, were morphologically and phylogenetically studied in detail and the phylogeny inferred from nLSU sequences shows that the nine specimens formed three terminal lineages within the Phylliporia clade.
Phylogeny and diversity of Fomitiporella (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota)
TLDR
This study made a comprehensive study on Fomitiporella on the basis of collections from Central America, USA, Europe, and China, and discovered 14 new lineages, including 4 new species described and illustrated as new species.
Crepatura ellipsospora gen. et sp. nov. in Phanerochaetaceae (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) bearing a tuberculate hymenial surface
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses based on molecular data of ITS+nLSU sequences showed that Crepatura belonged to the Phanerochaetaceae family and nested into the Donkia clade and phylogenetically was closely related to Pirex concentricus.
Taxonomy and Phylogenetic Analysis Reveal One New Genus and Three New Species in Inonotus s.l. (Hymenochaetaceae) from Brazil
TLDR
From morphological and phylogenetic inferences, Sclerotus Xavier de Lima, gen. nov. is described based on collections of Phellinus extensus, while Inonotus parvisetus V.Nov.
Leifiporia rhizomorpha gen. et sp. nov. and L. eucalypti comb. nov. in Polyporaceae (Basidiomycota)
TLDR
Investigation for more representative taxa in the Polyporaceae based on nLSU sequences demonstrated that the genus Leifiporia formed a monophyletic lineage with a strong support, and morphological and molecular evidence confirmed the placement of the new genus in the core polyporoid clade.
Collections on Lonicera in Northwest Iran represent an undescribed species in the Inonotus linteus complex (Hymenochaetales)
TLDR
Results show that the Iranian collections represent a new species of Sanghuangporus ligneus sp.
Multilocus, DNA-based phylogenetic analyses reveal three new species lineages in the Phellinus gabonensis–P. caribaeo-quercicola species complex, including P. amazonicus sp. nov.
TLDR
Three new lineages or phylogenetic species of Phellinus occurring in the Neotropics have been revealed, one of them represented by multiple collections originating from Neotropical, lowland, dense, moist forest at the western edge of the Amazon Basin in Ecuador, the Guiana Shield in French Guiana and (more likely) Trinidad.
Global diversity and phylogeny of the Phellinus igniarius complex (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota) with the description of five new species
TLDR
This study expands the taxon samplings of the P. igniarius complex to include 59, seven and 12 additional collections originating from China, Czech Republic and USA, respectively, and generates 78 nuc rDNA ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 (ITS) and 42 translation elongation factor 1-α gene (tef1α) sequences.
Phellinopsis lonicericola and P. tibetica spp. nov. (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota), from Tibet, with a key to worldwide species
TLDR
Morphological data and sequences of the nuc rDNA ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 region (internal transcribed spacer [ITS] barcode) support the recognition of these taxa as distinct, and eight accepted species of Phellinopsis worldwide are grouped together as a strongly supported clade distinct from the clade representing Phellinus.

Phylogeny and taxonomy of the Inonotus linteus complex
TLDR
Inonotus linteus, an epitype of this species being designated here, is circumscribed as a narrow sense based on morphological and phylogenetic data, and this has lead to delimiting a new species from Mesoamerica, viz.
Inonotus tenuicontextus sp. nov. (Hymenochaetaceae) from Guizhou, southwest China with a preliminary discussion on the phylogeny of its kin
TLDR
This subclade was proposed as a medicinal group for most of its members with medicinal functions and the phylogeny of the six species in this medicinal group was briefly discussed based on the results.

The relationships of the European poroid Hymenochaetales were assessed from an array of 20 characters: 14 morphological and microscopical features of the fruit body, cultural type and nuclear
Hymenochaetaceae (Basidiomycota) in China
TLDR
An account of the Chinese species of Hymenochaetaceae based on most recent phylogenetic analysis is presented and nuclear large subunit sequences from some typical species were selected to reconstruct their phylogeny.
A further study on Inonotus linteus complex (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota) in tropical America
TLDR
Two new species in the Inonotus linteusLinteus complex (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota), InOnotus pseudolinteus and I. sideroxylicola, are described from tropical America and a new combination, InonOTus dependens, is proposed.
Phylogeny of Phellinus and related genera inferred from combined data of its and mitochondrial SSU rDNA sequences
TLDR
Molecular evidence indicated that the ancestral nuclear type could be a binucleate feature, and that there might be parallel gains of branched setae and parallel losses of setae in the Hymenochaetales.
Proceedings towards a natural classification of the worldwide taxa Phellinus s.l. and Inonotus s.l., and phylogenetic relationships of allied genera.
TLDR
The phylogenetic trees were discussed in relation to morphological and anatomical features of the fruit bodies and the taxonomic status of Phellinidium and Pyrrhoderma remained uncertain.
The generic names proposed for Polyporaceae.
TLDR
The family is taken in a broad, artificial sense, but exclusive of the Boletaceae and ‘Meruliaceae’ sensu lato, and the new combinations Flaviporus brownei (Humb. per Pers.) Donk and Xerotinus afer (Fr.)Donk are proposed.
Current advances in Phellinus sensu lato: medicinal species, functions, metabolites and mechanisms
TLDR
Twenty-six species of Phellinus sensu lato, reported as medicinal mushrooms, are enumerated in this review and three aspects of mechanism contribute to antitumor activities of polysaccharides: promoting an immune response, inducing cell apoptosis, and inhibited metastasis.
Species clarification for the medicinally valuable 'sanghuang' mushroom.
TLDR
The true sanghuang is a new and previously undescribed species that grows solely on Morus in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan and is now rare and endangered in the wild.
