2 Microscopic structures of Perenniporia aridula (from holotype). a Basidiospores; b Basidia and basidioles; c Cystidioles; d Hyphae from trama; e Hyphae from subiculum MycoBank: MB 800238 Type China. Yunnan Province, Yuanjiang County, on fallen angiosperm trunk, 9 June 2011 Dai 12396 (holotype GSK2126458 concentration in BJFC). Etymology Aridula (Lat.): referring to the species growth in a xerothermic environment. Fruiting body
Basidiocarps perennial, resupinate, adnate, corky, without odor or taste when fresh, becoming hard corky upon drying, up to 18 cm long, 8.5 cm wide, 6.2 mm thick at centre. Pore surface cream when fresh, becoming cream to buff-yellow upon drying; pores round, 6–7 per mm; dissepiments thick, entire. Sterile margin more or less receding, cream-buff to pale salmon, up to 2 mm wide. Subiculum buff, thin, up to 0.6 mm thick.
Tubes concolorous with pore surface, hard corky, up to 5.6 mm long. Hyphal structure Hyphal system trimitic; generative hyphae with clamp connections; skeletal and binding hyphae IKI–, CB+; tissues unchanged in KOH. Subiculum Generative hyphae infrequent, hyaline, thin-walled, usually selleck chemicals llc unbranched, 1.8–2.2 μm in diam; skeletal hyphae dominant, hyaline, thick-walled with a wide to narrow lumen, occasionally branched, interwoven, 2.7–3.2 μm in diam; binding hyphae hyaline, thick-walled, frequently branched, flexuous, interwoven, 0.9–1.9 μm in diam. Tubes Generative hyphae infrequent, hyaline, thin-walled, CP673451 cell line unbranched, 1.5–2 μm in diam; skeletal hyphae dominant, hyaline, thick-walled
with a wide lumen, frequently branched, interwoven, 2.1–2.7 μm; binding hyphae hyaline, thick-walled, frequently branched, interwoven, 1–1.5 μm in diam. Cystidia absent, fusoid cystidioles present, hyaline, thin-walled, 13.1–19.2 × 3.2–5 μm; basidia barrel-shaped to pear-shaped, with four sterigmata and a basal clamp connection, 11.5–17.2 × 8.7–10 μm; basidioles dominant, mostly pear-shaped, but slightly smaller than basidia. Spores Basidiospores ovoid to subglobose, truncate, hyaline, thick-walled, smooth, strongly dextrinoid, CB+, (6–)6–7(–7.1) × (5–)5.1–6(–6.1) μm, L = 6.65 μm, W = 5.61 μm, Q = 1.17–1.20 (n = 60/2). Additional Bumetanide specimen examined (paratype) China. Yunnan Province, Yuanjiang County, on fallen bamboo, 9 June 2011 Dai 12398 (BJFC). Remarks Perenniporia aridula is characterized by perennial, resupinate basidiocarps with cream to buff-yellow pore surface, a trimitic hyphal system with indextrinoid and inamyloid skeletal and binding hyphae, and its basidiospores are ovoid to subglobose, truncate, strongly dextrinoid and cyanophilous. Perenniporia meridionalis Decock & Stalpers is similar to P. aridula in having perennial basidiocarps and basidiospore morphology (6–7.7 × 4.5–6.2 μm), but differs by having a dimitic hyphal system with dextrinoid skeletal hyphae, and presence of arboriform hyphae (Decock and Stalpers 2006). Perenniporia rosmarini A. David & Malençon resembles P.
