Poronidulus conchifer – little nest polypore

Synonyms: Boletus conchifer, Coriolus conchifer, Microporus conchifer, Polyporus conchifer, Polystictus conchifer, Trametes conchifer.

Common name: little nest polypore.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Poronidulus is a fungal genus in the family Polyporaceae. It is a monotypic genus, and contains the single polypore species Poronidulus conchifer, found in North America. The genus was circumscribed by American mycologist William Alphonso Murrill in 1904. The generic name, which combines the Ancient Greek word πόρος ("pore") with the Latin word nidulus ("small nest"), refers to the superficial similarity of the cup-shaped Poronidulus fruit bodies with those of the genus Nidularia. A second species, Poronidulus bivalvis, found in Bogor, was placed in the genus by Franz Xaver Rudolf von Höhnel in 1914. The actual identity of this taxon, however, is uncertain.

Swedish: Poronidulus.
