Wet rot is typically confined to the area of dampness because the mycelium does not spread into walls. In rare instances mycelium can develop extensively and most wet rot fungi produce strand. The most common type of wet rot is caused principally by Coniophora puteana. Poria vaillantii is another important wet rot fungus and a number of less common fungi also occur.
