Etymology: Cibao means echinate spores from the Chinese; Cibaomycesrefers to the fungus with echinate basidiospores.

Basidioma stipitate-pileate with lamellar hymenophore. Pileus glutinous. Lamellae adnate to sinuate to subdecurrent, white to cream-colored, thick; lamellar edge brown to brownish at maturity. Stipe central, densely covered with felted squamules, sticky; pseudorhiza present. Context pallid to cream-colored, unchanging when cut. Basidiospores colorless and hyaline, occasionally with brown to dark brown contents, non-amyloid, non-dextrinoid, subglobose to broadly ellipsoid, thin- to slightly thick-walled, echinate. Cheilocystidia subcylindrical to narrowly clavate, heavily incrusted. Pleurocystidia absent.
