In his observations and examinations the author stated the host plants of red tinder (Phellinus torulosus) in Hungary and the rate of its spreading in forest types. It is most frequent in shrubberies (Orno-Cotinentalia) and pubescent oak stands (Quercetalia pubescentis) in various associations. It is scattered in oak stands on sandy steppe and in cultivated locust stands of Hungary. Examining damages caused by the tinder, an astonishing phenomenon came into light i.c. although its fruit body appears in the trunk of several tree species (e. g. Quercus pubescens, Cornus mas) it does not cause rotting. In these cases decay can be observed only in the died substance (trunk, stump) while with some other species (Robina pseudoacacia, Prunus avium etc.) a definite heart-wood rotting can be seen. We cannot give a clear explanation of the connection of tinders with the tree species where their fruit bodies appear without causing rotting. The white rottening decomposition scan of Phellinus torulosus is characteristic. The cellulose is accumulating in the hollowing substance in the form of white stains.
