Information on this page is based on original research of R. E. Tulloss and C. Rodríguez Caycedo.
The spores of the present species measure (8.0-) 8.2 - 10.6 (-14.0) × (6.5-) 7.1 - 9.5 (-10.8) μm and are broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid and inamyloid. Clamps are probably absent from bases of basidia.

Due to delays in data processing at GenBank, some accession numbers may lead to unreleased (pending) pages.
These pages will eventually be made live, so try again later.
The following is based on original research of R. E. Tulloss and C. Rodríguez Caycedo.
at least 65± mm wide, grayish brown in field photograph, uniformly dark slate gray as seen in lab, virgate, slightly concave; context predominantly white; margin striate (0.35±R), with rather widely spaced striations, nonappendiculate; universal veil as white "smears" of variable thickness (possibly indicating volval attachment to pileipellis persisting during expansion resulting in tearing away lower portion of volval material in irregular manner).
close, sordid; lamellulae ??, of diverse lengths, ??.
110± × 9± mm, gracile, white, decorated with concolorous pulverulence from apex to top of volval limb; context white; exannulate; universal veil as saccate volva, membranous, proportionately short (26± × 19± mm), with rather dry white outer surface suggesting an eggshell, with limb dividing into two main rounded lobes.
Each spore data set is intended to comprise a set of measurements from a single specimen made by a single observer;
and explanations prepared for this site talk about specimen-observer pairs associated with each data set.
Combining more data into a single data set is non-optimal because it obscures observer differences
(which may be valuable for instructional purposes, for example) and may obscure instances in which
a single collection inadvertently contains a mixture of taxa.
