Notes:
Growing among leaf and needle litter at the edge of a mixed pine-hardwood forest. Pileus umbilicate and scaly. Gills not marginate. Odor slightly sweet in dried specimen. Clamp connections absent in all tissues. Pleurocystidia absent. Gill margin sterile, with abundant clavate cheilocystidia. Cheilocystidia hyaline, smooth and lacking vacuolar pigment. Cheilocystidia measurements: 26.3 – 35.2 × (12.7) 12.72 – 16.8 µm, Q = 2 – 2.77 (2.8); N = 5, Me = 32.5 × 14.6 µm; Qe = 2.2. Spores angular and pink in mass. Spore measurements: (10) 10.5 – 12.2 (13.5) × (5.8) 6.7 – 7.9 (8.2) µm, Q = (1.3) 1.4 – 1.8 (2); N = 30, Me = 11.5 × 7.3 µm; Qe = 1.6
