Coniferiporia sulphurascens (Pilát) L.W. Zhou & Y.C. Dai 2016 - (laminated root rot of conifers)

The fungus causes laminated root rot of Douglas fir and other Pinaceae (but not Thuja spp.). Susceptible trees are killed slowly, often collapsing from decay of supporting roots or attacked by bark beetles. This species has been frequently referred to as the non-cedar form of Phellinus weirii.
