Microscopy: Pileipellis: Cellular (29-34µm diameter) with a
lower layer of interwoven hyphae. Basidia: 2- and 4-spored, 26-35µm x 8-11µm. Gill trama: Convergent Cheilocystidia: Present as large inflated cells,
33-50µm x 12-19µm. Pleurocystidia: Rare, inflated cells. Caulocystidia: Present, cylindrical. Spores: Rounded to globular, rough to warty
without germ pore; 6.9-8.1µm x 6.1-7.2µm,
