In English.
The first edition essentially updated and extended the treatment provided by the principal author in Synopsis Fungorum volume 7 "The Polypores of Europe"
The second edition follows the style and format of the previous edition and now contains 45 additional colour photos. The overall quality of reproduction has also improved. In addition there are 117 black and white drawings.

The generic concepts are conservative as before, since the book primarily is meant to be a manual for naming specimens. Nevertheless, several new genera to the European mycota have been added, such as Amylosporus and Wolfiporia besides Favolaschia with F. calocera, a poroid “Mycena” which now is spreading rapidly in Europe.

The authors have added several new tables with spore drawings from genera like Antrodia, Antrodiella, Ceriporia, Junghuhnia, Oligoporus, and Skeletocutis, making it easier to determinate species in these genera. Some recently changed species concepts in genera like Antrodia have been incorporated. Generic names have been added to the upper page corners, making finding specific genera quicker.
