Remarks (public):Eriksson et al. (1981), basing on the presence of dendrohyphidia and nature of basidia and basidiospores, pointed out a relatioship of Punctularia with Laeticorticium (Corticium). Molecular studies confirm this hypothesis and Punctularia is included in the Corticiacae with other genera such as Corticium, Dendrocorticium and Vuilleminia (Larsson 2007b).
