Spores
Spores 9-12 x 6-8 µm, elliptical, smooth; spore print pale yellowish-buff.

Comments
Clavariadelphus truncatus is distinguished by a club-shaped fruiting body, with a flattened or squared apex. It's shape is somewhat suggestive of the yellow chanterelle to which it is distantly related, but it lacks the characteristic ridges and cross-veined hymenium.
