Taxon Details and Links

  • Tremellodendropsidales Vizzini, Index Fungorum 152: 1 (2014). Type: Tremellodendropsis (Corner) D.A. Crawford 1954.
Tremellodendropsis was split out of Aphelaria in 1954. They were treated as part of Clavariaceae but have since parted company. Tremellodendropsis with partially septate basidia was moved to the Tremellales, then the Auriculariales, and now its own order Tremellodendropsidales. Meanwhile Aphelaria was placed in Aphelariaceae in the Cantharellales but has been neglected in recent phylogenies and its true placement is unclear.
