The spores of this species measure (5.5-) 8.6 - 13.0
(-15.5) × (4.0-) 6.5 - 9.4 (-12.0) μm, and are
broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid (rarely subglobose or
elongate) and inamyloid. Clamps are absent from
bases of basidia.
Known from the Dominican Republic under deciduous
trees, where it occurs in November and December.
It is similar to another Caribbean species described
from Trinidad and Tobago—A. antillana,
which differs, at least,
in having proportionately broader
spores.—R. E. Tulloss and A. Wu
Due to delays in data processing at GenBank, some accession numbers may lead to unreleased (pending) pages.

Olive text indicates a specimen that has not been
thoroughly examined (for example, for microscopic details) and marks other places in the text

Macroscopically, this species resembles
originally described from
Trinidad and Tobago. Of the two, the present
species has distincly narrower spores.

Each spore data set is intended to comprise a set of measurements from a single specimen made by a single observer;
and explanations prepared for this site talk about specimen-observer pairs associated with each data set.
Combining more data into a single data set is non-optimal because it obscures observer differences
(which may be valuable for instructional purposes, for example) and may obscure instances in which
a single collection inadvertently contains a mixture of taxa.
