Trechispora xantha C.L. Zhao

MycoBank no.: MB 838160

Basidiomata annual, resupinate, without odor or taste when fresh, becoming hard corky up on drying, up to 17 cm long, 3 cm wide, 20–60 μm thick. Hymenial surface smooth, cracking, slightly buff (13:4A4) when fresh, becoming darker yellowish (22:4A4) upon drying. Subiculum very thin, pale buff (13:4A4). Margin narrow, pale buff (13:4A4). Hyphal system monomitic; generative hyphae with clamp connections, IKI–, CB–; tissues unchanged in KOH. Subiculum composed of colorless, thin-walled, frequently branched, long generative hyphae, 2–3.5 μm in diam., ampullate hyphae frequently present. Subhymenial composed of colorless, thin-walled, rarely branched, short generative hyphae, 1.5–3.5 μm in diam.; cystidia and cystidoles absent; basidia subcylindrical to subclavate, 14.5–23 × 4.5–7.5 μm, four-spored and with a basal clamp connection; basidioles dominant, in shape similar to basidia, but slightly smaller. Basidiospores ellipsoid, colorless, thin-walled, smooth, with oil drops, IKI–, CB–, (4–)4.3–5.7(–6) × (3–)3.2–4(–4.3) μm, L = 4.97 μm, W = 3.64 μm, Q = 1.32–1.41 (n = 60/2).
