Abstract:  Four species of Abundisporus Ryvarden are described including two new combinations: A. pubertatis (Lloyd) Parmasto and A. subjlexibilis (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Parmasto. Absorption spectra demonstrated uniformity of the pigments in this genus, but also in Loweporus tephroporus (Mont.) Ryvarden; to distinguish the species, statistical measurement of spore size have been used. Relations of the genera Abundisporus, Perenniporia and Loweporus are discussed.
