Pileus 10-35 mm, campanulate or paraboloid, often truncate, expanding to convex, finally applanate to concave, often with depressed or subpapillate centre, with involute or straight margin, with marginal zone often sulcate to undulating when old, hygrophanous, when moist pale to moderately dark yellow, olivaceous yellow or lemon-yellow, at centre often darker and more brown, paler towards margin (Mu. 5 YR 7/6, 6/6, 6/4; 2.5 Y 7/6, 6/6, 6/4, 5/4; centre 5 Y 5/6; 10 YR 5/4, margin 2.5 Y 8/6) translucently striate up to half of radius, pallescent on drying to pale yellow or olivaceous yellow (5 Y 8/6, 8/4; K. & W. 2A5/6), smooth when moist, radially fibrillose on drying, sometimes subsquamulose at
centre. Lamellae, L = 20-30, I = 0-3, moderately distant, adnate or emarginate, sometimes broadly adnate with small decurrent tooth, segmentiform to ventricose',, up to 6.5 mm broad, white then pale yellow finally pink, often with slight brown tinge when old (5 Y 8/2; 2.5 Y 8/6, 8/4; 10 YR 8/6, 8/4; 7.5 YR 8/4, 7/6), with entire to subdentate, concolorous edge. Stipe 20-80 x 2-4(-5) mm, cylindrical, often slightly broadened towards base, pale yellowish or greyish brown at apex, downwards more flesh-coloured or pinkish brown, at base often with purplish tinge, more rarely entirely yellowish-olivaceous and concolorous with pileus (10 YR 8/4, 8/6, 7/4, 7/6 base 7.5 YR 7/6, 6/6, 5/6, rarely 5 Y 6/4 or 2.5 Y 6/4), minutely pruinose to flocculose at apex, downwards glabrous or minutely striate with scattered silvery fibrils, white tomentose at base. Context subcartilagineous or brittle, yellowish-olivaceous in pileus, pallid in centre of stipe. Smell strongly aromatical like that of amylacetate, fruit, Entoloma ameides, Hebeloma sacchariolens or Inocybe periodora, rarely indistinct. Taste weak or nasty.

Pileipellis a cutis of 4-17 µm wide cylindrical hyphae with scattered clavate terminal elements up to 25 µm wide. Pigment intracellular in pileipellis. Clamp-connections present in hymenium.
Habitat & distr. - Solitary or subgregarious, usually terrestrial on humus-rich, nitrogen-rich soil, particularly in gardens, parks and deciduous forest, but also found on bare, clayey soil. Common. widespread in Europe. July-Nov.
