Lentinus lamelliporus Har. & Pat.

Tokyo Lentinus Fungus (Lentinus lamelliporus)

This species was described in 1902; it is apparently known only from a small area within Tokyo, the Japanese capital on the island of Honshu.

The species could not be traced during recent searches and might well be extinct. [1]
