This taxon was characterized by having pleurocystidia with slightly thickened yellowish walls in KOH, but apparently P. piluliformis can have this feature too and P. alaskaensis is now considered a P. piluliformis synonym.

“Apparently the pleurocystidia change over development of fruitbodies form their very drastically. They are stocky and short neck initially (as in B-collection Ludwig 2007), but later, much larger and long-necked. The walls can sometimes be a little thicker and yellowish.”
