Hymenial surface Pale Grayish Smoke, smooth, minutely pilose owing to projecting septocystidia, not cracked; margin concolorous, thinning, arachnoid. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae nodose-septate. Subiculum uniform, composed of medullary layer, with rather loose texture; hyphae richly ramified, somewhat interwoven, colorless, distinct, 2-3.7 μm diam., with 0.3-0.6 μm thick walls. Subhymenium not clearly differentiated. Hymenium and subhymenium IKI brownish, somewhat CB+. Cystidia of two kinds: (1) Septocystidia numerous, projecting, colorless, with several clamped septa, 40-100 (-130) × 3.5-7 μm, with 0.4-0.7 μm thick walls, apically thin-walled.
