Notes:
Growing on fallen Magnolia acuminata cones on the edge of the “Asbury Fen”. Locally abundant. Basidiocarps becoming yellowish-brown in drying. All structures inamyloid. Clamps absent in the pileipellis and lamellar trama. Pileipellis composed of rounded cells with scattered pileocystidia. Pileocystidia smooth, hyaline and lageniform to conical. Pleurocystidia scattered; hyaline, thick-walled and fusoid-ventricose. Cheilocystidia forming a narrow band; hyaline, smooth and fusoid-ventricose to fusoid. Cheilocystidia measurements: (24.4) 26.6 – 35.3 (38.5) × (8.8) 9.2 – 11.9 (14.6) µm, Q = (2.2) 2.4 – 3.4 (4.2); N = 30, Me = 30.8 × 10.7 µm; Qe = 2.9. Spores smooth, hyaline and thin-walled. Spore measurements: (4) 4.7 – 6.9 (8.2) × (2.4) 2.7 – 3.8 (4.6) µm, Q = (1.3) 1.5 – 2 (2.2); N = 30, Me = 5.7 × 3.3 µm; Qe = 1.7
