Remarks (internal):Entoloma galericolor has a very unique combination of characters, with its cuboid spores, sterile lamella edge with long, septate cheilocystidia, and trichodermal pileipellis. The cuboid spores do not per sé indicate a close affinity with members of sect. Staurospora, since all other microscopic characters rather indicate much similarity with Entoloma insolitum, which has heterodiametrical spores, however.

Description:Entoloma galericolor Courtec., Doc. Mycol. 23 (89): 10. 1993. (fig. 379)
Pileus 6-9 mm broad, convex with umbilicate centre and deflexed margin, weakly hygrophanous, when moist translucently striate up to half the radius, ochre-beige, reminiscent the colour of Omphalia pyxidata, opaque on disc, pruinose-micaceous on margin. Lamellae distant, arcuate, decurrent, very pale beige pink, with thickish pruinose edge. Stipe 10-17 x 1.5-2 mm, cylindrical or tortuous, pale beige brown, somewhat translucent with a greyish-bluish reflex, pruinose at apex only, downwards polished, glabrous. Smell fruity-acidulous; Smell fungoid with a slight farinaceous or slightly bitter aftertaste.
Spores 7-9 µm, cuboid. Basidia 35-52 x 6-13 µm, 4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge sterile. Cheilocystidia 40-180 x 5-12 µm, cylindrical-irregularly flexuous, septate, terminal elements often more or less clavate-subcapitate. Pleurocystidia absent. Hymenophoral trama regular, made up of cylindrical, 4-10 µm wide hyphae. Pileipellis a trichoderm, made up of clavate-lobate terminal elements, 30-100 x 10-20 µm. Pigment subtle membranal and intracellular. Clamp-connections abundant.
Habitat and distribution: terrestrial on a mossy lakeshore on sandy, acid soil. So far only known from France and Austria.
