Description:Basidiocarps annual, sessile to effused-reflexed or rarely resupinate, usually in large imbricate clusters; sterile surface hirsute to strigose, pinkish buff to cinnamon or clay colour, usually azonate; pore surface concolorous with upper surface, darkening when dry; pores irregular, daedaloid to irpicoid, dissepiments becoming thin and lacerate; context fibrous, azonate, pale buff; tube layer concolorous with the context. Hyphal system dimitic; generative hyphae in context and trama thin-walled with clamps, hyaline, rarely branched, contextual generative hyphae often sclerified, thick-walled, forming short or rather long intercalary segments with clamps at their distal ends, 2-4 µm wide; skeletoid hyphae thick-walled, hyaline with partial branching, non-septate, usually lacking directional growth but curved, flexuous, often apparently connecting the hyphal strands, 2-4 (6) µm wide. True cystidia absent, fusoid cystidioles occasionally present. Basidia clavate, four-sterigmate, 20-25 — 5-7 µm; basidiospores cylindric, thin-walled, slightly curved, hyaline, negative in Melzer's reagent, (5.5-)-6-7-9(-10) — (1.7-)2-3 µm.
