Remarks (internal):Hymenial surface of H. granulosa is sparsely odontoid with smooth area between the aculei. This macroscopical feature, the capitate leptocystidia and the ellipsoid basidiospores (5-6.5 x 3.5-4.5 µm) characterize H. granulosa. This species had well-known as H. aspera, but Ginns and Lefebvre (1993) placed H. aspera in synonymy with H. granulosa.
