Type studies of the polypores described by E. J. H. Corner from Asia and the West Pacific I. Species described inPolyporus, Buglossoporus, Meripilus, Daedalea, andFlabellophora

Abstract

Identifications of 28 polypore species described by Corner were made by type examinations. The following new comblnations are proposed:Antrodiella aurantiaca; A. heritierae; Grifola kinabaluensis; Perenniporia marmorata; Piptoporus malesianus. The following species are accepted in the original genera:Polyporus aurantibrunneus; P. pervadens; Meripilus applanatus; Flabellophora intertexta; F. velutinosa. The following species are synonyms:Buglossoporus matangensis; B. rufescens; Meripilus villosulus; Flabellophora inconspicua; F. nana; F. squamosa. The following species belong to difficult species complexes, and allied species are cited:Polyporus trametoides; Flabellophora latiporus. The following species are dubious because of their poor or sterile conditions:Buglossoporus flavus; Flabellophora brevipes; F. deceptiva; F. flaviporus; F. obtorta; F. subsimplex. No authentic specimens were traced for the following 4 species:Buglossoporus brunneiflavus; B. magnus; Meripilus maculatus; Daedalea langkawiensis. Descriptions and line drawings are given for some of the accepted species. The taxonomic positions ofPolyporus obovatus and its allied species, and the genusFlabellophora are discussed.
