The taxonomic status is pending for approval

Description

Spongispora temasekensis has a convex to broadly-plano convex pileus of 30-70 mm diameter, chocolate brown to brownish and brownish-orange. Initially its young pileus is subtomentose, later cracking into patches with age. The flesh is whitish turning pale brown very slowly upon exposure. The tubes are about 1.5 cm deep, at first whitish to cream becoming blond and yellowish brown to light brown with age. The pores are small, roundish to irregularly angular and of the same colour as the tubes when young, later becoming apricot yellow to grayish orange with age. Like the flesh, the pores turn brownish to brown when bruised. The reticulated stipe or stem is 45-70 mm tall, 8-10 mm wide, yellowish white at the apex, orange gray, brownish white, brownish orange to brownish at the base with blue mycelium (Wu et al., 2018).

In Peninsular Malaysia, S. temasekensis has been found in an ex-tin mining area at the Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) Research Station, Bidor, Perak (Thi et al., 2018; 2019) and on the grounds of the Forest Research Institute Malaysia at Kepong, Selangor.
