Remarks (internal):The genus Laxitextum differs from other genera of the subfamily Gloeocys­tidielloideae in forming usually effuso-reflexed stereoid basidiomata. Boidin (1958) emended and restricted the generic concept by Lentz (Lentz, 1955), and retained only the type species L. bicolor. Subsequently, L. incrustatum Hjort. & Ryv. and L. lutescens Hjort. & Ryv. were added to the genus (Hjortstam and Ryvarden, 1981). In Japan, only the type species has been known.
