Abstract

A new fungal species, Phellinus ralunensis, from Ralún, Chile is described based on basidiome, cultural, and wood decay characteristics. Distinctive characteristics include clusters of trichocysts on the pore surface of basidiomes and circinate vesicles in culture. Optimum temperature range for growth is 20–25 °C, with no growth ≥ 30°. The fungus causes a white pocket rot resulting in localized areas of selective delignification in wood of Eucryphia cordifolia.
