Abstract
A new corticioid species is recognized in the genus Phanerochaete based on the material collected from the Changbaishan Nature Reserve in NE China. Phanerochaete aurantiobadia sp. nov. is characterized by an orange to reddish brown, resupinate basidiome turning coccine red upon contact with potassium hydroxide (KOH), lack of rhizomorphs and cystidia, and small ellipsoid spores. Phylogenetic analyses of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and large subunit (LSU) sequences show that Ph. aurantiobadia is nested within the core Phanerochaete clade, where the type of the genus Ph. velutina is also nested. The new species is illustrated and compared with similar taxa, and some notes are given on Phanerochaete s.s.
