It is a cross between tubular and lamellar hymenophores. Sometimes it is more close to the spongy type of the hymenophore, characterized by angular pores, or the lamellar type, in which the bridges are clearly visible between the plates. The plates are characterized by a yellow color and most often descend to the stem of the mushroom.
