Genus Bresadolia Speg.

[look-alike to Polyporus squamosus]

This genus was for many years a synonym of Polyporus. It was reestablished by Audet (2017) and analyzed by Motato-Vásquez et al. (2018).

Some records of Bresadolia craterella on Mushroom Observer appear to be confused with the similar Cerioporus admirabilis (Polyporus).

  1. Bresadolia craterella, tropical to subtropical America; as far north as NE Wisconsin (if the same species). The illustrated collection, PRL 12886, is from Cook County, Illinois.
  2. Bresadolia cuticulata, China.
  3. Bresadolia paradoxa, Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Paraguay (Polyporus aquosus).
  4. Bresadolia uda (complex), Indonesia, Africa, Asia, Neotropics.
