Further Information

Notes (MWS) Characterised by subregular hymenophoral trama with rather short inflated cells rarely more than 200microns long.

The following groups belong here:

Sombre coloured waxcaps without decurrent gills.
Very viscid species with both stipe and cap so sticky as to be difficult to pick up.
Red-orange species with yellow or crenate margin or scaly caps.
All brightly coloured species with subdecurrent gills.

But other species are less distinctive.
