Remarks (internal):The species may be confused with I. radiatus which however has hooked to straight hymenial setae and where tramal setae are present close to the base of the tubes. Besides that this species occurs only rarely on Fagus. I. hastifer is also a related species occurring exclusively on Fagus. However, this species has long setal hyphae in the dissepiments or pore mouths and is more or less completely resupinate.
