Microscopic characters: Marginal hyphae 2.5-5 µm diam., thin walled, nodose septate, sparsely branched, usually branches arising 14-18 µm below septa. Submerged hyphae 1.5-3.5(-5.5) µm diam., thin walled but wider hyphae becoming slightly thick walled by 6 wk, nodose septate, moderately branched; by 6 wk some becoming inflated up to 10 µm diam.. Surface hyphae (a) similar to submerged hyphae except wider hyphae becoming thick walled by 2 wk and some segments heavily encrusted with hyaline, crystalline. materials; (b) fiber hyphae 1.5-3.5 µm diam., sometimes with intercalary swellings up to 8 µm diam., thick walled but thinning toward apex, tapering slightly at apex or enlarged up to 8 µm diam, clamped at base, rarely branched, occasionally lightly to heavily encrusted with hyaline crystals, absent or numerous at 2 wk, rare to numerous at 6 wk.
Species code: 2. 3c. 8. 26. 27. 32. 36. 38. 43-44. 48.50.54.
Remarks: Steccherinum subrawakense occurs on angiospermous wood in Florida (Murrill 1940; CFMR records). Unfortunately, there are no outstanding characters that distinguish this taxon in culture from other Steccherinum species.
