growing flat on wood with pore surface exposed, up to 0.6cm thick, separable, soft to tough, margin narrow to wide, white
Flesh:
up to 0.3cm thick, cottony; white
Pores:
3-5(6) per mm, round, white to grayish; tube layer up to 0.5cm thick, grayish toward the surface but more white toward flesh, colorless hyphal pegs variably present
Odor:
faint, unpleasant (Buczacki)

spores 5-7 x 1.5-2 microns, allantoid [curved sausage-shaped] to cylindric, inamyloid, colorless, thin-walled; basidia 15-20 x 4-6 microns, clavate; cystidia none but "fusoid, non-projecting cystidioles occur scattered among the basidia"; hyphal system trimitic: generative hyphae 3-5.5 microns wide, colorless, with clamp connections, skeletal hyphae 3-8 microns wide, straight to sinuous, thick-walled to solid, "gelatinized in KOH and disappearing, weakly amyloid, most easily seen in hyphal masses", binding hyphae apparently rare, 2-4 microns wide, thin and richly branched, observed only in context
Spore Deposit:
white (Buczacki)
