A collection of the fungus Ascocorticium anomalum (Ell. & Harkn.) Schroet., was made in Ohio, on Nov. 4, 1961, by Harry Knighton and W. B. Cooke, in Hobey's Hollow, Shawnee State Forest, Scioto County. This fungus was named after comparison with 15 other collections of this species from four herbaria in the United States. It is suggested that Basidiomycetes might have arisen from a genus like Ascocorticium, where the amount of sterile tissue is reduced in comparison with the amount of ascogenous tissue.
