Pileus 5-40 mm broad, applanate slightly depressed at centre to deeply umbilicate, with involute or inflexed margin, often with irregularly lobed margin when old, not hygrophanous, not translucently striate, uniformly pale cream, flesh-colour or pale brownish-isabella, entirely tomentose, sometimes zonated, dull. Lamellae, L = 15-20, l = 3-7, moderately distant, broadly adnate to decurrent, sometimes forked, arcuate to segmentiform, up to 4.5 mm broad, sometimes thickish, white then pink with entire, concolorous edge. Stipe 10-25 x 2-2.5(-3) mm, cylindrical or compressed, sometimes with bulbous base, white or hyalinous, sometimes with grey or yellow tinge, usually covered in white arachnoid fibrillose covering or white tomentose. Context thin, hyalinous. Smell strongly farinaceous. Taste rancid­farinaceous.
Spores 9.0-12.5 x 6.0-9.0(-10.0) µm, Q = 1.1-1.6, irregularly nodulose-angular in side view with basal facet. Basidia 4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a cutis with transitions to a trichoderm, made up of cylindrical to slightly inflated hyphae 4-16 µm wide with numerous free terminal elements, 20-55 x 4-19 µm. Pigment intracellular, often almost absent and very pale. Clamps present.
Habitat: In mossy grassland, meadows, road sides etc., preferably on (slightly) calcareous soil, also found in marshy vegetation with Sphagnum; summer-autumn.
