Remarks (public):Dentipellis is characterized by the hydnoid hymenophore, monomitic hyphal system, presence of gloeocystidia and ornamented amyloid basdiospores. It is related to other genera in the Hericiaceae as Laxitextum and Hericium, sharing the gloeocystidia and the ornamented amyloid basidiospores; molecular data also confirm these relationships (Larsson 2007b).
