Description:Phlebiella lloydii (Liberta) Larss. & Hjortst. - Mycotaxon 29:318, 1987; Xenasma lloydii Liberta., Mycologia 59:906, 1960; Corticium lloydii Bourd. & Galz., Hym. de France p. 210, 1928 non Corticium lloydii Bres., Selecta Mycol. II p. 61, 1926.
Fruitbody resupinate, effuse, closely adnate, moderately thin, smooth or under a strong lens uneven to granulose, ceraceous, when dried rather hard, at first greyish with an olive tint, then more or less olive-brown, margin indeterminable.
Hyphal system monomitic, all hyphae with clamps, basal ones straight, parallel to the substratum, few, 1.5-2.5 µm, other hyphae intermingled, often conglutinated with walls gelatinized, some hyphae variable in width and becoming irregularly inflated.
Basidia short-cylindrical, mostly pleural, covered with granulate encrustations which are easily observed in Melzer and Cotton blue but dissolve in KOH, 8-12(--15) x 1.5-6 µm, with four sterigmata and a basal clamp.
Spores short-allantoid, smooth, thin-walled, 4.5-6x2-2.5(-3) µm, amyloid.
Habitat and distribution. Rare species and known on pine-wood from but two localities in Sweden (SmÀ¥land, Bygget, type-locality; Västergötland, Billingen). Further reported from Canada by Liberta (1960).
