Rigidoporus is a genus of fungi in the family Meripilaceae. Many of the species in this genus are plant pathogens. The widespread genus, which contains about forty species,[3] was originally circumscribed by American mycologist William Alphonso Murrill in 1905.[4] The generic name combines the Latin word rigidus ("rigid") with the Ancient Greek word πόρος ("pore").[5]
