Aphyllophorales: A tool to make ornaments

The order Aphyllophorales was proposed by Rea, after Patouillard, for Basidiomycetes having macroscopic basidiocarp in which the hymenophore is flattened (Thelephoraceae), club-like (Hydnaceae) or has the hymenium lining tubes (Polyporaceae) or some time on lamellae, the poroid or lamellate hymenophores being tough and not fleshy as in the Agaricales. It comprises more than 190 genera and 1175 species. They cause decay and rot in the heartwood of dead and living trees, cause huge profit loss in the logging industry every year. It is estimated that about one third of annual timber harvest is lost due to some form of rot. Due to its woody texture alongwith attractive fruit bodies, these fungi can used as raw material for decorative articles and establish side by side a mushroom ornament industry to enhance economic status of indigenous inhabitants.
