Remarks (internal):The non hygrophanous pileus clearly place this species in sect. Entoloma, where it takes a rather isolated position because of the dark brown pileus, ochraceous-grey and yellow tinges of the stipe and small spores. Entoloma singulare Romagn. is similar, but differs by having a translucently striate margin of pileus, differently coloured stipe with blue-violaceous tinges in base, and much larger spores. Entoloma pomaceum Velen. has a pale grey pileus and bluish tinges in the stipe, besides larger spores and an aromatical smell. It therefore is considered as clearly different from E. luteobasis. Entoloma porphyrophaeum has more or less similar tinges in the stipe, but differs in many other characters, like a trichodermal pileipellis, presence of capitate cheilocystidia, larger, many-angled spores etc. It belongs to subgenus Trichopilus.
