Remarks (internal):Entoloma vinaceum is distinguished by its relatively small stature and collybioid habit. The typical variety has a yellow stipe. Two other varieties have been distinguished, based upon the colour of the stipe, viz. var. fumosipes Arnolds & Noordel. with a grey stipe, and var. violeipes Arnolds & Noordel. with a violaceous stipe. Both varieties have more or less the same habitat and distribution as the typical variety. Entoloma vinaceum is frequently collected fairly late in the season until early winter.
