It should be noted that the epithet chrysorhizon is a noun and indeclinable.
The generic name is here re-introduced and a brief description mainly taken from the original Latin diagnosis is supplied:
Basidiome resupinate, separable from the substrate, generally reddish orange. Hymenophore distinctly hydnoid, aculei up to 1-1.5 mm long, more or less cylindrical. Margin cordonic. Hyphal system monomitic; subicular hyphae, thick-walled, hyaline or slightly yellowish, encrusted, other hyphae subhyaline to hyaline, thin-walled to moderately thick-walled. In the original Latin diagnonis cystidia were said to absent (sine cystidiis), but they are tubular, though usually few, hyaline, thin-walled or with slight wall thickening. Spores ellipsoid, smooth, thin-walled, generally up to 4-5 µm long.
