Page number:365 
Remarks (internal):Entoloma indutum is unique among the species of subgen. Pouzarella because of its pale blue tinges in pileus and stipe. It may be mistaken for a species of subg. Leptonia, but it clearly belongs in the present subgenus on account of its lageniform cheilocystidia and presence of encrusting pigments in the pileipellis. The distribution-pattern is stili very unclear.

Pileus 20-30 mm broad, conico-campanulate expanding to convex, with small umbo, with involute then deflexed margin, not hygrophanous, not translucently striate, pale slate-blue, at centra with reddish-brown flush, coarsely radially fibrillose. Lamellae uncinate to almost free, ventricose, ash-grey then pinkish grey. Stipe 20-30 x 5-10 mm, cylindrical, fistulose, slate-­blue, concolorous pileus, fibrillose-striate lengthwise. Context concolorous with surface. Smell and tasta not known.
Spores 9.5-12(-13) x 7.5-9.5 µm, Q = 1.2-1.5, rounded 5-8 angled in side-view. Basidia 4­-spored, clampless. Lamella edge sterile. Cheilocystidia 32-80 x 17-30 µm, narrowly to broadly lageniform with broad basal part and long, tapering neck (2.5-5 µm wide), colourless, thin-walled. Pileipellis a transition between a cutis and a trichoderm, made up of radially arranged, cylindrical to inflated hyphae, 8-15 µm wide with repent or ascending, clavate terminal elements, up to 20 µm wide. Pigment blue, intracellular in pileipellis, in addition also minutely encrusting the hyphae of lower pileipellis and upper pileitrama. Clamps absent.
Habitat: terrestrial in deciduous forests on clayey soil; autumn.
Distribution: Europe (France, Great Britain), very rare.
