Use in the cultivation of Tremella fuciformis
Species in the Annulohypoxylon genus, especially Annulohypoxylon archeri, are commonly used in the cultivation of Tremella fuciformis, one of the foremost medicinal and culinary fungi of China and Taiwan.
Tremella fuciformis is a parasitic yeast that does not form an edible fruit body without parasitizing another fungus. The species Annulohypoxylon archeri is its preferred host, so cultivators usually pair cultures of Tremella fuciformis with this species, or others in the former Hypoxylon genus (now split into two genera – Hypoxylon and Annulohypoxylon).
