Remarks (internal):Distinctive for Entoloma klofacianum are the small basidiocarps with blue-violaceous tinges in pileus and stipe, the small, almost isodiametrical spores, and clamped basidia. Entoloma coelestinum is similar in having small, blue basidiocarps, but this species has still smaller, heterodiametrical spores, and more frequent clamp-connections in the trama.

Description:Entoloma klofacianum Noordel., Wölfel & Hauskn. in À–sterr. Z. Pilzk. 4: 128. 1995. (fig. 345)
Icon.: Noordeloos, Wölfel & Hausknecht in À–sterr. Z. Pilzk. 4: pl. IX. 1995.
Pileus 7-15 mm, plano-convex, deeply umbilicate, with deflexed margin, hygrophanous, translucently striate up to centre, when fresh bright blue to grey-violaceous, paler when old, pallescent on drying, loosing its violaceous tinge completely, at centre slightly squamulose, elsewhere more or less glabrous, at margin slightly grooved. Lamellae moderately distant, adnate with decurrent tooth, segmentiform, white then salmon pink with entire, concolourous edge. Stipe 14-26 x 0.5-1.5 mm, cylindrical with strongly swollen bulbous base, dark blue to violaceous, concolourous with pileus at first, pallescent to greyish blue, glabrous, polished, except for a few fibrils at apex. Context thin, concolourous. Smell and taste farinaceous.
Spores 7.5-9.0 x (6.0-) 6.5-8.5 µm, Q = 1.05-1.2 (-1.3), isodiametrical, 4-6 angular with rounded angles. Basidia 30-42 x 10-12 µm, 4-spored. Lamella edge fertile. Cheilocystidia absent. Pileipellis a cutis of cylindrical, up to 10 µm wide hyphae at margin, at centre trichodermal, made up of inflated elements, up to 16 µm wide, with intracellular pigment. Clamp-connections present, but not frequent in hymenium, not seen in trama.
Habitat and distribution: on mossy, somewhat ruderal place in park near Fraxinus and Carpinus on calcareous soil. So far only known from Austria.
