Fig. 8a.

Pileus 1-3 em broad, obtuse with an incurved cottony margin, expanding

paler (pale yellow below in one immature carpophore), surface
glabrous and naked, no pruinosity above and no veil seen.

Spores 5-7 X 3.5-4.5 ~, broadly ellipsoid to subglobose, smooth,
hyaline in Melzer’s solution. Basidia 40-50 X 5-6 ~, 4-spored. Pleurocystidia
not seen. Gill trama of interwoven narrow hyphae, 1.~3 ~
broad. Cuticle a trichodermium, hyphae 2-5 ~ broad, more or less erect
to loosely tangled, some with cystidioid terminal elements, nongelatinous.
Hypodermium not differentiated. Pileus trama chiefly of
radial, subparallel hyphae, a few periclinally disposed. Clamp connections

HABIT, HABITAT, AND DISTRIBUTION-On the ground in woods and
in a dried-up pool, Massachusetts, Michigan, Idaho, and Washington,
July-November. MATERIAL STUDIED-IDAHO: Smith 54279, 582.39. MASSACHUSETTS:

ellipsOid, smooth, pale yellow in Melzer’s reagent. Basidia 34-46 X
4-6 tt, 4-spored. Pleurocystidia and cheilocystidia none. Gill trama
