Fuscoporia atlantica (Basidiomycota, Hymenochaetaceae) is described and illustrated based on specimens collected in Atlantic Rainforest areas of São Paulo state, Brazil, and its inferred phylogenetic relationships are based on sequence data from the ribosomal ITS and LSU regions. The new species is characterized by an effused-reflexed to pileate basidioma, golden-yellow-ferruginous pore surface, tiny pores, dimitic hyphal system with thin-walled hyphae encrusted at dissepiment edges, mostly uncinate or hooked hymenial setae, and broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid basidiospores. An identification key to the Fuscoporia species recorded from Brazil is also provided.
