General Description:

Small to large sized basidiomata, terrestrial, lignicol, rarely fimicol. Veil fibrillose, scaly or granulose, consisting of chains of subcylindrical, partially slightly thick-walled and brownish pigmented cells and – as far as known – sphaerocysts (see Fig. 74). Stipe occasionally with an annulus. Spores mostly medium in size, laterally often phaseoliform, pale to medium dark, germ pore central, but often not visible. Basidia 4-spored. Marginal cells of the lamellae edge utriform, subutriform, subcylindrical, never predominantly lageniform, as well as clavate or sphaeropedunculate, rarely only in the latter forms. Pleurocystidia ever absent. Clamps present.
