Notes:
Growing on the underside of a hardwood log with Hydnophlebia chrysorrhiza, Phelbiopsis crassa and an unidentified polypore. Associate with a white rot. All parts inamyloid. Monomitic with clamped, encrusted generative hyphae. Cystidia and hyphidia absent. Basidia 4-sterigmate. Basidia measurements: (15.4) 15.42 – 19.4 × 4.3 – 5 µm, Q = 3.5 – 4.39 (4.4); N = 5, Me = 17.1 × 4.5 µm; Qe = 3.8/ Spores smooth, thin-walled and hyaline. Spore measurements: 4.7 – 5.4 (5.5) × (2.2) 2.3 – 2.9 (3) µm, Q = (1.8) 1.81 – 2.2 (2.3); N = 10, Me = 5 × 2.6 µm; Qe = 2
