Order Gloeophyllales Thorn

[various brown rot fungi]

This recently described order contains one family and seven genera. The members of this group are brown rot wood decayers. The exception is Borostereum, which is suspected to produce a white rot. Boreostereum radiatum is basal to the family and at one time placed in its own family Boreostereaceae Jülich (1981). For the recent phylogeny of the group see Garcia-Sandoval et al. (2011). Donkioporia is now excluded from the order and placed in the core polypore clade near Ganoderma.
