FRUITBODY annual, resupinate, widely effused or in small pathces, easily separable from the substrate, consistency soft to fibrous. PORE LAYER white to cream, somewhat glancing, pores round to angular 4-5(6) per mm, dissepiments thin papery and fimbriate, tubes up to 1 mm long. Margin narrow to wide, fibrous to almost rhizomorphic. CONTEXT also white to cream, thin and rarely up to 0.5 mm thick in section, fibrous, continuing without change into the dissepiments.
HYPHAL SYSTEM monomitic, generative hyphae in the dissepiments and the context hyaline, thin-walled, mostly with clamps but also with secondary simple septa, 2-4 µm wide, occasionally swollen up to 8 µm near the clamps. The hyphae are often encrusted with large crystals. CYSTIDIA slightly numerous, cylindrical, 30-70 x 4-8 µm, thin-walled to slightly thick-walled, strongly encrusted with yellow to golden crystals in most of the length. SPORES ovoid to subglobose, thin-walled, hyaline to slightly yellowish, echinulate, 2.5-4 x 2-3.5 µm, non-amyloid.
HABITAT. On dead angiosperms. DISTRIBUTION. North and South America, in Africa found in Kenya.
REMARKS. The main difference between T. mollusca and T. regularis is that the former has no encrusted cystidia.
