Distribution: Europe and North America. New to Japan.
Basidiomata resupinate, adnate, effused, 50-100 µm thick; hymenial surface grayish white, pale yellowish white to cream, smooth, floccose, pilose under the lens (x 20); margin concolorous with the hymenial surface, thinning out, indeterminate. In vertical section, subhyaline, subpellicular to submembranous. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae 2-5 µm in diam, smooth, thin- to thick-walled (up to I µm), nodose-septate, loosely intertwined in the subiculum; cystidia (hyphocystidia) numerous, cylindrical, 60-120 x 5.5-8.5 µm, with a basal clamp, smooth, thick-walled (up to 1.5 pm) except the apical part, projecting up to 80 µm beyond the hymenial surface; basidia subcylindrical, slightly constricted, 8-16 x 4-5 µm, with a basal clamp, producing 4 sterigmata; basidiospores cylindrical to suballantoid, 5-6 x 2-2.5 µm, smooth, thin-walled, non-amyloid.
