Dämmrich, F., Rivoire, B., & Melo, I. (2017) Postia saxonica, a new species of Postia (Basidiomycota, Polyporales, Fomitopsidaceae) from Germany.

Bulletin Mensuel de la Societe Linneenne de Lyon, 86(3-4), 71-74. DOI: (IF2017 0,064; Q4 Zoology)
Summary:

A new polypore species, Postia saxonica (Basidiomycota), is described and illustrated. It was found in one locality in Germany, growing on the fungus Daedalea quercina. Macroscopically it remembers Postia hirsuta Shen & Cui (Shen & Cui, 2014), but differs by the presence of gloeopleurous hyphae, hymenial cystidioles and narrow, oblong- ellipsoid to cylindrical spores, up to 12 μm long. Its ecology and position within the genus is discussed.
