Description:Pileus 7.0 -18 mm, initially hemispheric, then convex to conve, obtusely umbonate at center, small squarrose towards disc; striate, rimose or not at margin; chestnut brown in early age, brown at center, paler towards disc. Lamellae 1.3-1.5 mm broad, campylotropous, close, unequal, initially light-brown, becoming ochre with age. Stipe 80-110 × 1.5-2.0 mm, solid, pruinose all over, chestnut brown in early age, upper 1/3 ochre brown, chestnut brown towards base. Context creamy-white, fleshy in pileus and base of stipe, fibrillose in stipe. Basidiospores (7.3)8.0-10(11.2) × 7.3-9.0(9.7) μm (excluding the spines, spines up to 3.5 μm), Q= (1.00)1.05-1.28(1.39), subsphaeroidal to ellipsoid, with obviously columnar spines, guttulate or not, brown. Basidia 34-43 × 12-15μm, broad clavate to clavate, 4-spored, rarely 2-spored, with faint yellow amorphous contents. Pleurocystidia, 41-58 × 9-14 μm, fusiform, thick-walled towards the apex (up to 3.5 µm thick), with crystalliferous apices. Cheilocystidia 46-58 × 10-16 μm, fusiform to slenderly fusiform, thick-walled towards the apex (up to 3 µm thick), with crystalliferous apices, bottom side tapering or not, rarely with granulate contents at apices. Cheiloparacystidia, 12-26 × 7-14 μm, clavate to subsphaeroidal. Caulocystidia present at stipe apex, 51-73 × 11-17μm, slenderly fusiform to sublageniform, thick-walled towards the apex(up to 2.6 µm thick), rarely granulate contents, rarely ventricose. Cauloparacystidia, 19-34×7-12 μm, clavate. Pileipellis a cutis, composed of rough, cylindric to inflated hyphae. Clamp connections common in all tissues.
