Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

Pileus and stipe red or pink, covered in a thin to thick glutinous layer, glutinous layer of pileus and stipe surface connected, rupturing when pileus expands leaving an appendiculate gelatinous margin on the pileus and sometimes leaving a glutinous annulus on the stipe, resembling a peronate veil but the glutinous layer not separated from the pileus or stipe surface hyphae by a differentiated layer; lamellar trama hyphae fusiform, with tapered ends and oblique septa, some exceeding 140 µm in length; lamellar edge with pseudocystidia originating in the context, swollen, containing many vacuoles with oleaginous contents, sometimes with glutinous coating, simple or branched, projecting from the lamellar margin where they intertwine with similar but less vacuolated structures emanating from the stipe apex above the glutinous zone, these structures forming an arachnoid connection between the lamellae and stipe; sometimes hyphal strands connecting the pileus margin and stipe leave a fibrillose layer above the glutinous annulus; annulus sometimes obscure; basidia and spores dimorphic: macrobasidia clavate or somewhat capitate-stipitate, 4-sterigmate, with oleaginous contents and basal clamp connection; microbasidia clavate; basidiospores globose, subglobose to broadly ellipsoid.
