This is a widespread taxon of section Levipedes in the north temperate zone. In Latin America, members of this section appear to occur in the montane oak forest regions but not in the lowland forests. Spores, cheilocystidia, and paradermal view of the pileipellis are shown below. Costa Rican material was recently described by Halling (Brittonia 48: 487-494. 1996). Reprints are available.
