Page number:307 
Remarks (public):Gloiothele includes monomitic species with simple-septate hyphae, gloeocystidia SA+ and, smooth amyloid basidiospores (correspond to the Gloeocystidiellum lactescens group in Eriksson & Ryvarden 1975). Wu (1996) included in Gloiothele also Vesiculomyces (with gloeocystidia SA?) but at the present time, molecular studies seem to suggest their separation (see comments under Vesiculomyces).
