Nemania serpens (Pers.: Fr.) S.F. Gray var. hydnicola (Schwein.) Y.-M. Ju & J.D. Rogers is reported for the first time in Canada, fruiting on a decaying Fomitopsis pinicola sporocarp collected in Victoria, BC. Freshly ejected ascospores were germinated in culture, and produced both a Geniculosporium anamorph and the teleomorph on oatmeal agar. The isolate failed to produce teleomorphic stromata on scratch malt extract medium.
