Basidiomata resupinate, adnate, at first orbicular and then becoming confluent, ceraceous, 150-250 Ám thick hymenial surface "Primrose", dull yellow, "Luteous" to, yellowish-orange, smooth, sometimes slightly cracked when dried; margin white, "Primrose", dull yellow to "Luteous" thinning out indeterminately, sometimes fibrillose under the lens (X20). Context in vertical section subhyaline, membranous with a basal layer. Hyphal system monomitic; hyphae 2.5-4.5 Ám in diameter, smooth, thin- to thick-walled (up to 1 Ám), nodose-septate; hyphidia not branched, 35-70 x 2-3 Ám, produced in the hymenium; basidia narrowly clavate to tubular, sometimes sinuous, 50-60 x 7-8 Ám, with a basal clamp, producing four sterigmata, thin-walled, sometimes with oily materials; basidiospores narrowly ellipsoid to cylindrical, 10-14 x 4.5-5.5 Ám, smooth, thin-walled. nonamyloid.

Basidiocarp resupinate, effused, adnate, hymenial part ceraceous, basal part as well as margin often more membranaceous. Hymenial surface even or slightly warted, yellowish-orange, not or only slightly cracked when dry. Hyphae hyaline, always with clamps, often with oily droplets in the cytoplasma, thin-walled and agglutinated in the hymenium, thick-walled (up to 1.3 Ám) in base of context, often somewhat torulose and densely interwoven but not glued together, 2-4 Ám in diameter. Paraphysoid hyphae hyaline, thin-walled, irregular-cylindrical, with some oily droplets in the cytoplasma and a basal clamp, 2-3 Ám in diameter. Basidia hyaline, clavate, thin- or slightly thick-walled, with a basal clamp, 40-70 x 7-9 Ám, with four large and slightly curved sterigmata 7-10 x 1.5-2.2 Ám, contents of unripe basidia with some large or many small oily droplets. Spores hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, often with oily contents, with large, conspicuous apiculus, 15-18 x 5.9-7 Ám; germination mostly with one germ tube, often a secondary septum formed in spores concentrating the amount of cytoplasma.
