This species, as Poria serena, was listed in Moffatt (1909) but there are no collections at the Field Museum (F) for this species from anywhere. The five historic collections by Harper and Moffatt from Illinois and Wisconsin, 1903 and 1908, were distributed to seven other herbaria: FH, FLAS, MICH, MIN, PH, TENN, UC. The UC herbarium labels were printed here, stating: From the Cryptogamic Herbarium, Chicago Natural History Museum. These collections were originally labeled as Poria serena and are now filed under Poria serena, Trametes serena, and Ceriporiopsis aneirina. (Data from MycoPortal):
  • W.S. Moffatt, 30 May 1903. Glencoe, Illinois, on under side of log.
  • E.T. Harper, June 1903, Glencoe, Illinois, on poplar.
