Habitat: On hardwoods and conifers, causing a white rot.
Basidiomata effuse, annual, typically in patches a few centimetres in diameter but up to a decimetre in diameter, adnate or separable, up to 3 mm thick, fragile, soft; margin white, pinkish tan or purplish, narrow to relatively wide, thin, minutely tomentose to cottony, fimbriate; context white, pinkish tan, purple to cinnamon, up to 1 mm thick, soft, cottony; tubes white, pinkish or tan, pale to dark brownish purple, up to 2 mm deep; pore surface of various colours, cream, rosy pink, pale orange, bright orange, cinnamon, or sordid brown with a green tint, soft, dull, waxy; pores round, angular to sinuous, 2–5 per millimetre or 7–9 per millimetre in C. spissa, originating on the context as saucer-shaped depressions that coalesce to form a continuous hymenial surface.
Hyphal system monomitic. Generative hyphae 2–15 μm diameter with simple septa and in C. excelsa with rare single to verticillate clamp connec- tions, branches frequent and diverging at a right angle, walls thin to slightly thickened; cystidia lacking; basidia clavate, 12–23 × 4–8 μm, four sterigmate; basidiospores allantoid, cylindrical-ellipsoid to oblong, 3.5–9.5 × 1.5–3.5 μm, walls hyaline, thin, smooth, neither amyloid nor dextrinoid.
