Lamellae subdistant, broadly adnate with decurrent tooth, subventricose, brownish, only late with pink tinge, with entire, concolourous edge. Stipe up to 20 x 1-2 mm, cylindrical, slightly broadened towards base, pale brown, densely silvery striate lengthwise. Smell unpleasant, like rotting mushrooms.
Spores 9.0-12.5 x 7.0-9.0 (-9.5) µm, Q = 1.1-1.5, Qav = 1.3, variably shaped, 5-6 angular, rarely subrhomboid. Basidia clavate, 4-spored, clampless. Lamella edge heterogeneous. Cheilocystidia scattered among basidia, 50-80 x 6-10 µm, cylindrical, flexuous, clavate, sometimes subcapitate, and thin-walled. Pileipellis a simple cutis of radially arranged, up to 8 µm wide hyphae. Pigment moderately to coarsely incrusting the hyphae of pileipellis, in addition also intracellular. Clamp-connections absent from all tissues.
Habitat and distribution: in mossy roadside near Erica arborea and Lauraceae and Pinus canariensis. So far only know from the Island of La Palma, Canarian Islands, Spain.
