Polyporidae Vine, 1884

This family includes the genera

  1. Polypora.
  2. Ramipolypora.
  3. Tibetiporella.

Snyder (1991) includes the genus Fenestralia in the family. However, this leaves open the question of the status of the Family Fenestraliidae Morozova, 1963. For the present, the Fenestraliidae is retained as a separate family, despite the close relationships between the two groups.
