Type: Gelatoporia Niemelä, Karstenia 25(1): 22 (1985)

This new family was previously labeled as the Cinereomyces clade. It appears to be near Grifola outside the Polyporaceae. See Miettinen and Rajchenberg (2012) for details on this group. Below are the known genera and species for the family. I know of no records of these species for the Chicago area.

  1. Cinereomyces, C. dilutabilis, C. lenis, C. lindbladii, C. vulgaris
  2. Gelatoporia, G. griseoincarnata, G. subvermispora
  3. Obba, O. rivulosa, O. valdiviana
  4. Sebipora, S. aquosa
Gloeoporus dichrous and Gloeoporus pannocinctus are not related to Gelatoporia.
