Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

Amauroderma macrosporum is currently a synonym of A. aurantiacum (Gibertoni et al 2008). Macroscopically, this species is similar to A. calcigenum (Berk.) Torrend (1920: 18), but the
basidiospores of A. aurantiacum are distinctly ornamented and subglobose to globose (12–15 × 13–14 μm), while
finely ornamented and ellipsoid in A. calcigenum (11–) 12–15 × 9–12 μm.(Gomes-Silva et al 2015).
