Remarks (internal):Originally described from New Zealand and Cunningham (1963) reported
it from Australia. The Venezuelan specimens are rather poor, but all have
dextrinoid metuloids, amyloid spores, and lack clamp-connections.

Description of the Venezuelan specimen: Basidiome resupinate, effused, closely adnate, 0.2-0.5(-1.0) mm thick. Hymenophore smooth, whitish, margin abrupt. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae hyaline, thin-or moderately thick-walled, without clamp-connections. Gloeocystidia rare, more or less tubular, 20-40 x 4-6 µm, with a weak sulphovanillin reaction. Metuloids abundant, basally with a distinct dextrinoid reaction, up to 40-50 µm long. Basidia subclavate, hyaline, 25-30 x 6-7(-8) µm, basal clamp-connection lacking, with four sterigmata. Spores thinwalled, broadly ellipsoid, rugose, 7-9 x 5-7.5 µm, strongly amyloid.
