Growing gregariously on decaying leaves under hardwoods (mostly oak, maple, and tulip trees).

Pore surface yellowish-tan, pores radially arranged and adnexed.
Tubes 7-10mm long and a darker yellow-green than the bright yellow flesh of the cap. Tubes did not separate cleanly from the cap. Spore print olive.
Stem 3-5cm long, 7-10mm wide, firm, usually club shaped, and covered with glandular dots.
