In conifer debris. 4 cm tall. White rhyzomorphs.

Spores echinulate; most 6 × 3.5 microns, with spines up to 1 micron long. Clamps present.

Stipe darkens when handled, but does not immediately become green/blue as in some related species.

The match with R. eumorpha is not perfect: the description has spores length average of 7.8 microns, and yellowish rhyzomorphic strands.
