Etymology: Murinicarpus (Lat.): referring to the grayish pilei.

Diagnosis: Differs from other genera by stipitate basidiocarps with grayish pilei, dextrinoid and cyanophilous skeletal hyphae, presence of thick-walled cystidia, and hyaline, thick-walled ellipsoid, non-truncate and cyanophilous basidiospores. Basidiocarps annual, pileate, with a distinct lateral or central stipe, solitary. Pilei circular; margin undulating, blunt, more or less reflexed when dry. Pileal surface grayish to grayish brown, smooth. Pore surface ochraceous when dry. Context cream to ochraceous, soft corky. Tubes cream to pale straw color, corky. Stipe bearing a grayish to blackish cuticle, glabrous, slender, soft corky to corky when fresh, becoming corky to fragile upon drying. Hyphal system dimitic; generative hyphae bearing clamp connections; skeletal hyphae dextrinoid, CB+. Cystidia present, thick-walled. Basidiospores ellipsoid, non-truncate, hyaline, thick-walled, smooth, IKI, CB+.
