Hyphal system monomitic, hyphae hyaline, thin-walled or with a slight thickened wall, simple-septate. Cystidia of two kind: 1) lamprocystidia numerous, hyaline, moderately thick-walled, without dextrinoid reaction, 2) gloeocystidia few to numerous, thin-walled, with or without positive sulphovanillin reaction. Basidia narrowly clavate, with 4-sterigmata, without a basal clamp-connection. Basidiospores more or less ellipsoid, distinctly rugose in Melzer's reagent, seemingly smooth in KOH, amyloid.
