Remarks (public):Entoloma infula is characterised by its conical pileus, glabrous, cartilagineous stipe, fairly small spores and slightly incrusted hyphal walls, E. solstitiale is very close but has distinct intracellular pigment, and E. chlorinosum differs in having a strong, nitrous smell

Pileus 10-45 mm. conical then conico-campanulate, expanding with age to convex finally flattened, with strongly undulating margin. usually with pronounced papilla, hygrophanous, when moist ochraceous or greyish brown to sepia (K. & W 6D6, 6C5, 6C6, 6E6) translucently striate up to half of radius or more, sometimes zonate, pallescent on drying to ochraceous grey (5C5/C4), glabrous or minutely radially rugulose, shiny. Lamellae, L = 18-30, 1 = (1-) 3-7, crowded, narrowly adnate to almost free, ventricose, white then pink without any trace of grey or brown with entire, concolorous edge. Stipe 17-78 x 1.5-3 mm, cylindrical sometimes broadened towards base, concolorous with or slightly paler than pileus (6C3, CS, DS, or between D4 and C4), pruinose at apex, glabrous and polished or innately fibrillose lengthwise, not striate, at base white tomentose. Context membranaceous, usually rather firm, concolorous with surface in cortex, inner parts pallid. Smell absent or faint. Taste indistinct.
Spores 7.0-9.5(-10.0) x 6.0-7.0 µm, Q = 1.15-1.5, Q av. = 1.3, (4-)5-7-angled in side-view. Basidia 25-40 x 7.5-14 µm, 4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a cutis of radially arranged, (2.5-)4-11 µm wide hyphae; subpellis usually well-differentiated, made up of inflated elements. Pigment minutely incrusting hyphae of pileipellis and in addition pale brown. intracellular in pileipellis and subpellis. Clamp-connections present in hymenium.
Habitat & distr. - Solitary or in small groups in poorly manured grassland. usually on weakly acid soil poor in humus, hut also found on basic soil in xerophytic grassland. Rare. Widespread in north-western Europe in similar habitats. July-Oct
