Remarks (public):Amyloxenasma was segregated from Phlebiella as independent genus by Hjortstam & Ryvarden (2005) ranking to generic level the subgenus Amyloxenasma Oberw. It includes species with pleurobasidia and smooth amyloid basidiospores. The phylogenetic position of Amyloxenasma is unclear, but it could belong to the Amylocorticiaceae because the amyloid spore wall is indicative of this group, but it differs from other genera included in this family in the morphology of the basidia, typically pleurobasidiate (Larsson 2007b).
