Hymenial surface pale brown, no color changes in KOH, tuberculate, cracked; margin of an immature zone, ochraceous, with determinate and reflexed ends. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae simple-septate. Subiculum fairly uniform, composed of a medullary layer; texture fairly loose near subhymenium, variably in density elsewhere; hyphae ± vertical near subhymenium, ± horizontal near substratum, colorless, 2-4 μm diam and thin-walled near subhymenium, 3-7 μm diam and with 0.7-1.5 μm thick walls near substratum. Hymenium thickening, with compact texture; hyphae mainly vertical, usually glued together, colorless, thin-walled. Cystidia lacking. Basidia clavate, 22-32 × 4.5-5 μm, 4-sterigmate.
