Remarks (public):Auriscalpium is a stipitate hydnoid genus, although it does not shares the corticioid habit we include it in this manual to highlight the variability of the basidiome structure present within the russuloid lineage. It is phylogenetically very closely related to Gloidon, with effuse-reflexed basidiome and to Dentipratulum, with hydnoid gregarious sporophores (Larsson & Larsson 2003, Larsson 2007b).
