Description:This new taxon belongs to section Bulluliferae, subgenus Cystoclitus, and is similar to Clitocybe phaeophthalma (Pers.) Kuyper in having the pileipellis and stipitipellis consisting of the peculiar vesicular elements. The latter differs from the former in having a convex pileus with a depressed center, with a lardaceous, grey-beige pileal surface, and may be associated with Volvariella sp. This species also differs from other similar white species of Clitocybe by having pileipellis composed of irregularly parallel hyphae, with scattered vesicular elements called physalids. This taxon is well characterized by the entirely pure white carpophores, infundibuliform in shape and generally hollow to the base of the stipe.
