Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Phanerochaete hiulca is similar with P. areolata because both presents subulate strongly encrusted cystidia (metuloids), but P. hiulca has hymenophore creamish to greyish-yellow, basal hyphae thick-walled, cystidia often more than 10- 12 µm wide, spores 5- 7 x 2.5- 3.5 µm, and P. areolata hymenophore pale ochraceous with a brownish margin, basal hyphae mainly thin-walled, cystidia somewhat slender, and spores 6- 8 x 3- 3.5 µm (Hjortstam, 2000).
