Remarks (public):Laurilia is characterized by the trimitic hyphal system (a very rare feature among the corticioid fungi), the presence of metuloids, and by the amyloid echinulate basidiospores. It is phylogenetically included in the Echinodontiaceae among the russuloid clade with other corticioid genera as Amylostereum (Larsson & Larsson 2003, Larsson 2007b).
