    In this study, type specimens of Fomes angularis, Pileodon megasporus, Veluticeps philippinensis, V. pini, V. setosa, and V. tabacina are described and illustrated. Fomes angularis and V. pini are conspecific with V. berkeleyi. Basidia and basidiospores of V. philippinensis are described for the first time, and the new combination Pileodon philippinensis is proposed. Veluticeps australiensis Nakasone nom. nov. is proposed for V. setosa G. Cunn., an illegitimate name. The new genus Campylomyces is proposed to accommodate V. tabacina and V. heimii. The type specimen of Hymenochaete setosa is an amalgam of two or three species; thus, this name should be dropped. Observations on Hymenochaete japonica and Stereum medicum are noted. The genera Veluticeps, Pileodon, and Campylomyces are discussed and compared, and a key to the known species of Veluticeps and related taxa is provided.
