Remarks (internal):Entoloma prunuloides is a rare species in the lowlands of north-western Europe occurring in unmanured grasslands. It is probably more com- mon in subalpine meadows in central Europe. Entoloma prunuloides differs from E. eulividum and E. sinuatum in smaller spores and habi- tat.

Pileus 25-70 mm, conico-convex then convex, finally plano-convex usually with low, broad umbo, with slightly involute margin when young, not hygrophanous, not striate, yellowish brown to yellowish grey, relatively pale (Mu. 2.5 Y 8/3-10 YR 8/4) centre slightly darker (towards 10 YR 8/6-8/8, 7/6) slightly viscid when moist, satiny on drying, smooth. Lamellae, L = 45-50, l = 1 -3, moderately distant, thickish, deeply emarginate, ventricose, white then pale pink with irregularly dentate, concolorous edge. Stipe 40-75 x 8-12 mm, cylin- drical usually tapering downwards, white then tinged yellowish-greyish in middle part when old, coarsely fibrose-striate lengthwise, smooth, solid. Context firm, white but brown in cortex of pileus. Smell strongly farinaceous. Taste strongly farinaceous-rancid. Spores 7.0-8.0 (-8.5) x 6.5-8.0 µm, Q =1.0-1.1, Qav =1.05, isodiamet- rical, 5-7-angled in side-view. Basidia 27-45 x 7-13 µm, 4-spored. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis an ixocutis of 2.5-7.0 µm wide cylindrical hyphae. Pigment pale brown, intracellular in pileipellis. Clamp-connections numerous in all tissues.
Habitat & distr. - Single or in small groups in grassland on calcareous loam. Very rare. Only known from the south of the province of Limburg (Bemelen: Bemelerberg; Wijlre). Aug.-Nov.
