provided by wikipedia EN

Piloderma is a genus of fungi in the family Atheliaceae. The distinguishing characteristics of Piloderma are the thick-walled (roughly 0.25 µm) basidiospores, the club-shaped basidia with stalk-like bases, and the clampless-septate hyphae.[2] The widespread genus contains six species.[3]

Ecology

Piloderma is known to be a key ectomycorrhizal species in conifer forests, assisting in nitrogen recycling and assimilation.[4]
