Albatrellus cantharellus (Lloyd) Pouzar

Sendai Polypore (Albatrellus cantharellus)

This species was described in 1915; it is apparently known from an unspecified area in the vicinity of the city of Sendai on the island of Honshu, Japan.

The species appears to haven’t been recorded since and is thought to be possibly extinct. [1]
