Abortiporus

provided by wikipedia EN

Abortiporus is a genus of fungi in the family Meruliaceae. The widely distributed genus contains three species.[4] Species in the genus grow on the wood of hardwoods and conifers, either alone or around the stumps and living trees. It causes a white rot in dead wood and a white trunk rot in living wood. The genus was circumscribed in 1904 by William Alphonso Murrill.[5] The generic name is derived from the Latin abortus (arrested development of any organ) and the Ancient Greek πόρος (pore).[6]
