Abundisporus is a small genus of poroid fungi currently with eight recognized species. They differ from other polypores in having coloured rather than hyaline spores. The genus was circumscribed by Norwegian mycologist Leif Ryvarden in 1999.[1]


As of June 2017, Index Fungorum accepts seven species of Abundisporus:[2]
