Pileus 4-20 mm broad, conical, sometimes truncate-conical, usually blunt or with small papilla, rarely with slight central depression, with involute then straight, sometimes crenate margin, not hygrophanous, not or only faintly translucently striate at margin, grey with blackish centre, sometimes brown-grey, entirely densely fibrillose-squamulose with triangular squamules, that are erect at centre and adpressed towards margin, dull, not shining. Lamellae, L = 20-25, l = 1-3, moderately distant, arcuate-decurrent at first then adnate-emarginate to almost free, segmentiform to ventricose, dark grey-brown with pink tinge, with subentire or floccose, concolorous or slightly paler edge. Stipe 30-70 x 1-3 mm, cylindrical or slightly tapering or broadened towards base, rarely compressed, solind then narrowly fistulose, concolorous with pileus or slightly paler, with whitish to pale brown fibrilose covering, glabrescent with age, strigose at base with brown, radiating hairs. Context membranaceous, concolorous with surface. Smell none. Taste mild or bitter.
Spores (10.0-)10.5-15.0(-15.5) x 7.0-8.0(-9.0) µm, Q = 1.3-1.8, 6-8-angled in side-view with rather pronounced blunt angles. Basidia 4-spored, clampless. Lamella edge sterile or heterogeneous. Cheilocystidia 20-60(-75) x (9-) 12-35 µm, narrowly to broadly clavate. Pilepellis a transition between a cutis and a trichoderm, made up of repent to ascending, multiseptate, attenuate hairs with elements 45-110 µm long, 11-20 µm wide at base, 4-7 µm wide at apex. Pigment minutely to coarse/y encrusting in pileipellis and pileitrama. Stipitellis a cutis with transitions to a trichoderm, made up of subcylindrical, flexuose, 0-2 septate hairs, up to 200 µm long and 15 µm wide with yellow-brown, not encrusted walls. Clamps absent from all tissues.
Habitat: in sun-lit, xerophytic grass/ands, Juniperus-heaths etc. on calcareous soil; june­sept.
Distribution: Rare but wide-spread in Europe.
