Spores
Spores 7-10.5 x 4-6 µm, elliptical, roughened; spore print rusty-brown.

Comments
Gymnopilus sapineus is characterized by a patchy squamulose, golden-orange cap, which sometimes cracks radially in age. The yellowish, fibrillose, evanescent veil and bruising of the stipe from yellowish-orange to orange-brown are also important field characters. Another Gymnopilus species commonly found in our area is G. luteocarneus. It differs in having a smoother, somewhat darker (orange-brown) cap.
