Page number:331 
Remarks (internal):he type species of Pteridomyces is up to now only found on old fronds of ferns (Arthyrium, Dryopteris). It was originally described as Epithele, but the type of that genus has much larger basidia and very large, thick-walled spores. Epithele galzinii has been compared with Athelopsis, but the basidiocarp is not loosely pellicular, the hyphae are not loosely arranged and the basidia are not podobasidial.
