Basidia 4-celled, 913 × 810 μm, pedunculate. Basidiospores hyaline, thin-walled, broadly ellipsoid to broadly cylindrical, often slightly curved, 59.5 × 45 μm. On strongly decomposed logs of conifers.

Index Fungorum number: IF829009

Type species: Myxariellum concinnumV. Spirin & V. Malysheva, in Spirin et al., Nordic Journal of Botany 37: 8 (2019)
