Pileus 12-35 mm. conical or campanulate-convex, soon expanding to plano-convex with or without faint papilla or slight central depression, umbilicate in f. eccilioides, with straight margin, with irregularly undulating often radially splitting marginal zone when old, weakly hygrophanous, when moist translucently striate at margin only or not, pale to moderately dark grey-brown sometimes with reddish tinge (Mu. 10 YR 3/3, 3/4; 7.5 YR 4/4; at centre 10 YR 4/3. 5/3, 6/3) paler towards margin. slightly pallescent on drying, (strongly) radially fibrillose-satiny becoming subtomentose minutely squamulose with age and on drying, particularly at centre. Lamellae, L = 22-30, 1 = 1-3 (-5), moderately distant, almost free, deeply decurrent in f. eccilioides, (sub-)ventricose. white. then (sordid) pink, finally brownish pink (7.5 YR 6/4, 5/4) with concolorous, slightly irregular edge. Stipe 20-45 x 2-4 mm, cylindrical or compressed with longitudinal groove, tapering or slightly broadened downwards, concolorous with pileus or slightly paler, sometimes pruinose at apex and white tomentose at base, remaining surface polished, rarely somewhat pruinose. Context concolorous with surface in cortex, inner part pallid. fibrous. Smell farinaceous. Taste farinaceous.
Spores (7.0-)7.5-9.0 (-9.5) x 5.5-7.0(-7.5) µm, Q = 1.15-1.4(-1.5), Q av. = 1.3, mostly 6-angled in side-view. Basidia 23-33(-34) x 8-14 pm. 4- (rarely also 2-)spored. clampless. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a cutis with transitions to a trichoderm at centre of radially arranged, repent or ascending, up to 20 µm wide, cylindrical, septate hyphae, often with brown-coloured, slightly thickened terminal elements. Pigment brown. incrusting the hyphae of pileipellis and upper pileitrama, in addition brown intracellular granular in the hyphae of pileipellis. Clamp-connections absent.
Habitat & distr. - In small groups, terrestrial, on poor, acid soil, frequently met with in Calluna-heaths on pleistocene sands, but also found on peaty soil, although never among Sphagnum, not uncommon. Widespread in N.W. Europe. Aug.-Oct.
