Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Inonotus porrectus share with F. indicus and I. luteoumbrinus the annual and pileate basidiomata with a monomitic hyphal system, colored basidiospores and no setae. The species is also similar to I. jamaicensis, but they can be separated by macro and microscopic morphology. Inonotus porrectus presents pileus flabeliforme, not encrusted and not wrinkled, while I. jamaicencis presents pileus dimidiate to triquetrous, encrusted and wrinkled (baltazar et al. 2010, Zhou 2014).
