Remarks (internal):The genus should be fairly easy to recognize with species having an almost smooth hymenophore, hyphae without clamp-connections, both metuloids and gloeocystidia, and spores that are both rugose and amyloid. We are of the opinion that the dextrinoid reaction of the metuloids in Dextrinocystidium is not an important character for generic separation.

Description:Gloeopeniophorella Rick, Brotéria (Lisboa) Sér. trimest. Cienc. nat. 3:47, 1934.
Generic type: Gloeopeniophorella rubroflava Rick
Dextrinocystidium Sheng H. Wu, Mycologia 87:888, 1995.
Basidiomes resupinate, effused, adnate. Hymenophore almost smooth to slightly tuberculate, generally ochraceous. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae hyaline, thin-walled or with a slight wall thickening, without clamp-connections. Metuloids numerous, hyaline, moderately thick-walled, with or without dextrinoid reaction. Gloeocystidia few to numerous, thin-walled, with or without positive sulphovanillin reaction. Basidia narrowly clavate, with four sterigmata, without a basal clamp-connection. Spores more or less ellipsoid, distinctly rugose in Melzer's reagent, but sometimes smooth in KOH, amyloid.
