Abstract


Sarcodontia crocea (Schwein.) Kotl. (Kotlaba 1953: 117), is a resupinate wood-inhabiting basidiomycete with waxy, dentate-aculeate (toothed-spiny) hymenophore. This is characterized by the subulate, densely crowded spines, pale to sulphur-chrome yellow, turning to ochre and amber-brown with age; and a remarkable unpleasant acid-sweetish-fruity odour of young basidiomes. The preferred habitat of the fungus is decayed wood under bark or in cavities of old, unmanaged apple trees (Malus spp.), rarely other broadleaved hosts (Bernicchia and Gorjón 2010, Breitenbach and Kränzlin 1986).
