According to Corner & Bas (1962), the spores measure 6.4 – 7.9 x 6.2 – 7.7 µm when dried (7.0 – 8.5 x 6.5 – 7.5 µm, fresh) and are globose to subglobose (rarely broadly ellipsoid) and inamyloid. Clamps are not found at bases of basidia. Corner records that monkeys ate this species “without discomfort.” Described from forest in Singapore. It is also reported from China (Yunnan Prov.), and Malaya. Watercolors: Prof. E. J. H.
