Lamellae, L = about 20, I = 1-5, moderately distant. adnate or almost decurrent, triangular-segmentiform, then (sub-)ventricose, white or very pale grey; then pink with or without faint grey tinge. with entire, concolorous edge.

Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a trichoderm at centre, towards margin more like a cutis, made up of radially arranged inflated hyphae with up to 20 µm wide terminal elements. Pigment brown, intracellular in pileipellis. Brilliant granules present or absent in pileitrama. Clamp-connections absent.
