Remarks (internal):Although there are differences between the original diagnosis of Velenosky and the modern description, the concept of this species following Romagnesi (l.c.) is maintained.
Cetto's plate no 2329 perfectly depicts Entoloma nitens: the lustrous pileal surface is very distinct, and therefore it is not Entoloma juncinum.

Tipizzazione - Holotypus: non esiste; località di raccolta del tipo: surroundings of Praha, Bohemia, Czechslovakia.
Pileus 10-40 mm broad, conical or campanulate at first, then slowly expanding to convex rarely plano-convex, with straight or reflexed margin, hygrophanous, when moist translucently striate at margin to half the radius, grey-brown or with ochraceous-grey tinges, pallescent on drying to ochraceous-grey, radially fibrillose becoming strongly fibrillose-­lustrous on drying. Lamellae, L = 20-30, l = 1-3, moderately distant, deeply emarginate to almost free, ventricose, grey-brown then with pink tinge, with irregular, concolorous edge. Stipe 30-80 x 2-4(-6) mm, cylindrical or compressed with longitudinal groove, usually broadened towards base, grey-brown, concolorous with pileus, pruinose at apex, downwards strongly silvery-fibrillose striate, base white tomentose. Context more or less concolorous with surface. Smell faint, somewhat raphanoid or subfarinaceous. Taste weak, raphanoid.
Spores 8-10.5(-11) x 7.5-10(-10.5) µm, Q= 1.0-1.2, isodiametrical, regularly 5-6-angled in side-view. Basidia 4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a cutis of narrow, cylindrical hyphae, 2-11 µm wide, subpellis sometimes well-differentiated, made up of inflated elements, 35-70 x 10-20 µm. Pigment minutely encrusting the hyphae of pileipellis. Clamps present in hymenium, elsewhere rare or lacking.
Habitat: in deciduous forest and in grassy vegetations, spring to autumn.
Distribution: Rare, but wide-spread. Known from a few localities in northwestern and central Europe (Netherlands, Denmark, France, Czechoslowakia).
