Upon each of these basidia are in some species two, usually four, slender projections upon which the spores are produced.
The basidia are nearly round with four rather stout, elongated sterigmata, spores very nearly round.
They resemble each other very much, except that the basidia bear four sterigmata and a spore on each.
These cystidia extend above the basidia, and the ends are rounded so that sometimes they appear capitate.
The basidia are abruptly club-shaped, rather distant and separated regularly by rounded cells, four spored.
