Assessment Notes

Rigidoporus lineatus is characterized by the sessile to rarely substipitate basidiomata, pinkish buff to reddish-brown pileus surface, small pores,thick-walled, smooth to strongly encrusted cystidia and subglobose to globose basidiospores. It is macromorphologically similar to R. microporus, and only differing by the lack of cystidia and pores size (GOMES-SILVA et al 2014).
