Description:Diagnosis: Species of the new subgenus differ from species of subgenus Leccinellum by not bright yellow hymenophore, usually absence of yellow pigments in all parts of the basidioma. Especially scales of the stem turn black relatively soon. Pileipellis covering layer consists mostly of chains of spherical cells (sphaerocysts). The new subgenus is supported by phylogenetic analysis (see DEN BAKKER & NOORDELOOS 2005, NUHN & al. 2013, ORIHARA & al. 2016). Also as a result of mixed features in the diagnosis of the genus Leccinellum it is reasonable to divide the genus at least in subgenera.
