Page number:333 
Remarks (internal):Entoloma kristiansenii belongs to sect. Fernandae on account of habit, type of pigmentation and spores, and clampless hyphae. The silvery striate stipe reminds of Entoloma acidophilum and E. argentostriatum that differ, however, by having smaller spores and fertile lamella edge.
