says that “The allantoid spores of X. fuvlipes are different from all known species of Xeromphalina” pg. 185 and spores “4.2-5.0 × 1.2-1.8 μ, narrowly allantoid” pg. 185

“Basidia 15-21 × 3.5-4.2 μ, clavate, 4-spored” pg. 185

The cystidia picture matches the cheilocystidia picture in the monograph “cheilocystidia 14-44 × 3.5-4 μ, fusiform, narrowly cylindric or narrowly clavate, often with an attenuated apex” pg. 185

http://www.svims.ca/council/Xeromp.htm says that X. brunneola can also have allantoid spores but they have decurrent gills.
