Diagnosis: Basidiocarps appearing as small gelatinous outgrowths on a hardly visible joint subiculum, later fusing into reticulate compound fructifications. Hyphal structure monomitic, hyphae clamped, subicular hyphae interwoven, subhymenial hyphae ascending. Tramal cystidia tubular, slightly taperingupwards, apically blunt. Gloeocystidia often present,running more or less parallel to tramal cystidia. Cystidia of both types with hyaline content unchanging in KOH. Basidiospores thin-walled, subglobose, repetitive, 3.5–6 9 3–5μm, often with one large oil drop. Basidia 2–4-celled, pedunculate,7–9 9 6–8 μm, with slender, distantly located sterigmata.
