The search for active producers of metabolites having medicinal importance has been an urgent task for mycologists and biotechnologies for several decades. For successful performance of this task, the knowledge of the biology and ecology of the fungi, as well as the importance of their evolutionary development and natural taxonomical relationships, is necessary.
Being a rare and interesting species, Haploporus suaveolens (should not be confused with Trametes suaveolens (Fr.) Fr.) has received much attention by mycologists over the two last centuries. There are indications of diverse household and medicinal uses of this fungus within North American indigenous peoples (Blanchette, 1997); however, both in America and Europe the fungus has still not been investigated for medicinal and biochemical aspects. The main reason is its scarce distribution and small number of culture strains. Hence, the study of biological features and revealing the natural taxonomical position of this species could have a great importance.
