Remarks (internal):The pale colour of pileus and stipe, deeply striate pileus, adnate to decurrent lamellae make it possible to identify Entoloma lividocyanulum already in the field. Additional microscopical characters as small spores and fertile lamella edge make it possible to distinguish it from related species, like E. asprellum and E. huijsmanii.

Pileus 10-35 mm broad, hemispherical to convex only slightly expanding with age, rarely applanate, with slightly to distinctly depressed centre, with slightly involute then deflexed or straight margin, not distinctly to weakly hygraphanous, when moist deeply translucently striate, sepia in young specimens, in mature specimens usually pale yellow-brown with darker brown, granulose-subsquamulose centre, smooth on margin, pallescent on drying. Lamellae, L = 20-35, l = 1-7, moderately crowded, variably inserted from adnate with decurrent tooth to deeply emarginate, segmentiform to ventricose, white then pure pink with concolorous, entire edge. Stipe 25-60 x 1-3(-4.5) mm, cylindrical or compressed, slightly broadened towards base, moderately dark to pale blue, fading with age and becoming more or less brownish, smooth, polished, sometimes pruinose at apex, base often white tomentose. Context thin, concolorous with surface. Smell none. Taste mild.
Spores (7.0-)7.5-10.0(-11.0) x 6.5-7.5 µm; Q = 1.3-1.5, rather regularly 5-7-angled in side­view. Basidia 4-spored, clampless. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a cutis of cylindrical to slightly inflated hyphae, 5-15 µm wide, at centre with trichodermal aspect of slightly inflated, (semi-)erect terminal elements, up to 20 µm wide. Pigment brown, intracellular. Clamps absent.
Habitat: in poor grasslands, often on more or less calcareous soils.
Distribution: Wide-spread all over Europe. Summer-Autumn.
