Phylloporia yuchengii is newly described and illustrated from alpine ecosystem, Western Tien Shan Mountains in the Tashkent Province of Uzbekistan. This species is distinguished from other Phylloporia species in a combination of hard corky consistency of basidiocarps with thick base (up to 3.5 cm) and azonate pileal surface, pores as 6-8 per mm, a monomitic hyphal system with regularly arranged, interwoven and subparallel generative hyphae, respectively, in context, tomentum and trama, and ellipsoid to oblong-ellipsoid and cyanophilous basidiospores (3.2-4 × 2.3-3 μm). In nLSU-based phylogeny, P. yuchengii nested within the Phylloporia clade and formed a distinct lineage with strong supports. The morphological differences between P. yuchengii and other related Phylloporia species in morphology and geography are discussed.
