Description:Punctularia strigosozonata (Schweinitz) Talbot, Bothalia 7: 143, 1958. (Fig. 13)

Basidiomata usually effuso-reflexed, orbicular at first and then some becoming confluent, ceraceous, 0.4-1 mm thick; abhymenial surface "Buff" to dark brown, velutinous, sometimes zonate with narrow, blackish brown bands; hymenial surface "Dark Brick", "Sepia", "Brown Vinaceous" to black, smooth, tuberculate to phlebioid when fresh. In vertical section, subhyaline, with a brown abhymenium. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae subhyaline to pale brown, 2.5-5 µm in diam, smooth, thin- to thick-walled (up to 2 µm), nodose-septate; cystidia lacking; dendrohyphidia numerous in the hymenium, subhyaline, richly branched; basidia tubular, 35-55 x 4-5 µm, with a basal clamp, producing 4 sterigmata; basidiospores ellipsoid, 5.5-7.5 x 3-4 µm, smooth, thin-walled, non-amyloid.
