Remarks (internal):Entoloma pleopodium is easily identified on account of the yellowish-olivaceous coloured, smooth pileus, and also on the strong aromatical smell, although odourless forms also frequently occur. It should be noted, however, that the distinctive odour often develops under certain temperature conditions. Especially in cold weather there is hardly any smell at all, but when the fruitbodies are kept for a while in a closed box, or are warmed up a bit in ones hands, the characteristic smell will be noted. Macroscopically the fruitbodies of E. Pleopodium are very variable, especially the shape of the pileus. It is one of the Entoloma species most frequently collected in gardens in places with litter etc.

Tipizzazione - Holotypus: non esiste, località di raccolta del tipo: Francia
Pileus 10-35 mm broad, very variable in shape: campanulate or convex, more rarely parabolical or conical, expanding to convex with flattened or truncate centre, sometimes papillate or umbilicate, with involute then straight margin, marginal zone often more or less sulcate or undulating with age, hygrophanous, when moist pale to moderately dark yellow, olivaceous-yellow or citrine, centre often darker and with brown to reddish brown tinges, margin usually distinctly paler, deeply translucently striate at least up to half the radius, pallescent on drying to pale yellow or olivaceous-yellow, smooth becoming more or less felted-subsquamulose at centre when dry. Lamellae, L = 20-30, l = 0-3, insertion variable from adnate or emarginate to broadly adnate with decurrent tooth, segmentiform or ventricose, often relatively broad, white or pale yellow then pink, with slight brown tinge when old, with irregularly serrulate, concolorous edge. Stipe 20-80 x 1-5, subcylindrical, often flexuose and with bulbous base, pale yellow, grey or brown at apex, downwards flesh­coloured, brown or greyish-brown, at base often with purplish tinges, more rarely subconcolorous with pileus, minutely pruinose to flocculose at apex, with scattered silvery fibrils below, white tomentose at base. Context subcartilagineous or brittle, yellow­olivaceous in pileus, pallid in centre of stipe. Smell usually strongly aromatical (amylacetate, orange-blossom, reminiscent that of Hebeloma sacchariolens, Entoloma ameides or Inocybe pyriodora), more rarely absent. Taste weak to rather strong, unpleasant.
Spores 8-11 (-11.5) x 6.5-8(-9) µm, irregularly 5-6-angled with rather acute, pronounced angles. Basidia 4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a cutis of narrow, cylindrical, 4-17 µm wide hyphae. Pigment intracellular in pileipellis and upper pileitrama. Clamps abundant in hymenium, rare to frequent in other tissues.
Habitat: terrestrial, on bare ground or in humus, preferable in deciduous forest, parks, gardens, waste places etc. And on nitrogen-rich places, often found among Urtica dioica and other herbaceous plants; summer-autumn..
Distribution: wide-spread and fairly common allaver Europe.
