Pileus 15-30 mm, conical, then conico-campanulate, usually with papilla, rarely truncate, with involute margin, weakly hygrophanous, when moist translucently striate at margin or not, olivaceous brown to olivaceous grey, (Mu. 2.5 Y 4/4: 5 Y 34/2), slightly paler when dry, minutely radially fibrillose with metallic sheen, finally with minute fibrillose squamules at centre. Lamellae, L = about 30. I = 1-3, distant, narrowly adnate to almost free, triangular, then ventricose, grey, then grey-brown, finally with pink tinge (10 YR 4-5/2-4), with flocculose, concolorous edge. Stipe 25-50 x 2-3 mm. cylindrical, sometimes slightly broadened at base, pale at apex, downwards darker to rather dark grey, sometimes with olivaceous tinge, at base often with red tinges, entirely silvery-fibrillose to flocculose, at base strigose with white or reddish radiating hairs. Context brown-grey in pileus with olive-green tinge, grey-brown in upper half of stipe, becoming darker downwards. Smell none or sourish-spermatic. Taste not recorded.
Spores (9.0-) 9.5-11.5 (-12.5) x 7.0-8.0 (-9.0) µm, Q = 1.2-1.5, Qav = 1.3-1.35, 6-8-angled in side-view. Basidia 35-50 x 11.5-13(-15) µm, 4-spored, clampless. Lamella edge heterogeneous. Cheilocystidia (42-) 60-110 x 10.5-25(-30) um, narrowly to broadly lageniform with broad basal part and long, tapering often submoniliform neck, colourless, thin-walled, numerous. almost always mixed with basidia. Pileipellis a transition between a cutis and a trichoderm, made up of radially arranged, cylindrical to inflated hyphae with up to 20 µm wide terminal elements. Pigment pale, intracellular in pileipellis and incrusting the hyphae of lower pileipellis and upper pileitrama. Clamp-connections absent.
Habitat & distr. - Solitary or in small groups, terrestrial on bare soil or in humus of deciduous forests on rich soils. Very rare (Stroe). Widespread, known to occur in Europe and N. America. Aug.-Sept.
