Pore surface white, pale grayish white to yellowish brown; pores angular or irregular; dissepiments thin, entire to lacerate. Context white to cream. Hyphal system trimitic; generative hyphae bearing clamp connections; skeletal hyphae IKI, CB–. Basidiospores cylindrical, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, IKI, CB–.
