Remarks (public):Ghobad-Nejhad (2009) proposed Gloiothele orientalis (Parmasto) Ghobad-Nejhad, collected from Russia, as distinct from G. lactescens on the basis of its much thinner, detachable basidiome, as well as developing fewer and shorter gloeocystidia.

Description:Gloiothele lactescens (Berk.) Hjortstam, Windahlia 17: 58, 1987.
Bas.: Thelephora lactescens Berk., in Smith, Engl. Fl., Edn 2 5(2): 169, 1836. Syn.: Gloeocystidiellum lactescens (Berk.) Boidin, C. r. hebd. Séanc. Acad. Sci., Paris 233: 1668, 1951.
Basidiome resupinate, adnate, effused, hymenial surface smooth, hygrophanous when wet, yellowish, cracked lips-like when dry, old specimens with numerous deep cracks, margin thinning out, fimbriate. Hyphal system monomitic, hyphae 1.5-3.5 µm in diam, smooth, thin-walled, simple-septate some paraphysoid hyphae projecting above basidia. Gloeocystidia numerous, more or less tubular, sinuous, without a basal clamp, variable in size, mostly about 100-150(-200) x 5-8(-10) µm, smooth, thin-walled, sometimes slightly projecting beyond the hymenial surface, with a granular oily content, SA+. Basidia narrowly clavate with a slender, elongated base, 45-60 x 6-7 µm, without a basal clamp, with 4-sterigmata. Basidiospores broadly ellipsoid, 6-7.5 x 4-5 µm, smooth, thin-walled, slightly amyloid.
Distribution in Europe: Switzerland, Russia, Estonia, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Belarus, Poland, Irland, Croatia, Macedonia, Slovenia, Belgium, United Kingdom, Slovenia, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Ukraine, and the Caucasus.
