Widely distributed in the Neotropics, this species is distinctive by virtue of the globose spores with long, obtuse spinose projections. In Costa Rica, we have found this taxon in non-ectotrophic forests in Guanacaste near Cerro Cacao and in the south near the Panamanian border around San Vito. Formerly placed in Xerula.
