Sparassidaceae

provided by wikipedia EN

The Sparassidaceae are a family of fungi in the order Polyporales. The family was circumscribed by German botanist Wilhelm Herter in 1910 to contain the genus Sparassis.[1] Sparassiella was added to the family in 1964.[2] As of April 2018[update], Index Fungorum accepts 10 species in the Sparassidaceae.[3]

Description

The fruit bodies of Sparassidaceae fungi consist of branched, fan-shaped segments that originate from a central core. The hyphal system is monomitic, with gloeoplerous hyphae (containing oil droplets). These hyphae have scattered clamp connections. The spores are smooth, thin- to somewhat thick-walled, and hyaline (translucent). Cystidia are mostly absent from the hymenium. Sparassidaceae fungi cause brown rot.[4]
