Exoperidium hairy, bronze to reddish brown (5E5–6F5), covered with a 0.4–0.7 mm tomentum, arranged in irregular and flexible tufts; external wall smooth to faintly plicate, 0.4–0.5 mm between folds. Mouth minutely fimbriated, 0.2–0.5 mm long, concolor to the exoperidium. Endoperidium brownish grey to greyish brown (6D2–6D3), smooth to faintly plicate, 0.5 mm between folds, perceptibly bright, contrasting with the exterior. 1–2 mm brownish grey to greyish brown (5F2–8F3) stipe; epiphragm fragile, white to beige, flexible.

Cortex double layered. Basidiospores smooth, hyaline, elliptical to ovoid, without an apicule, 13.97–19.05 × 10.16–12.7 µm (L = 16.28 µm; W = 11.37 µm; Qm = 1.44), thin walled, 1.27–2.54 µm.
