- arista tenui inferne parum torta, with the awn thin below a little twisted.

- cellulae proximales haud distinctae vel e seriebus 2-5 cellularum parum majorum compositae, proximal cells not differentiated or composed of 2-5 rows of cells somewhat larger.

- [fungi] ostiola parum prominentia (S&A), the ostioles somewhat prominent.

- [fungi] sphaerulae in nostris quoque teretes fere, iconi Todeanae parum consonae, nec plano-lamellatae apte dicendae (S&A), the sphaerules in our [sc. species] are also nearly terete [i.e. rounded-cylindrical], somewhat agreeing with the illustration of Tode’s, not correctly to be called plano-lamellate.

- [fungi] ostiola sphaerulas fere aequantia, vel paullo longiora, iis saepe parum tenuiora(S&A), the ostioles nearly equalling [i.e. in length] the sphaerules, or somewhat longer, often than these somewhat thinner.

- corolla lutea glabra calycem parum superans (Boissier), the corolla yellow, glabrous, somewhat overtopping the calyx.
