Remarks (public):As Entoloma fuscomarginatum has been found only once in the Netherlands, the description above is supplemented by observations on several collections from Scotland, where this mushroom occurs rather frequently in peaty or marshy areas. There are slight differences between the Netherlands' and the Scottish material: in Scotland, the basidiocarps usually have a dull brown colour with slight purple sheen and are rather strongly hygrophanous. Moreover, in the Scottish collections, the smell is always distinctly farinaceous, whereas the Netherlands' collection had a curious smell like a mixture of a weakly farinaceous component with a coconut-like one.

Description:Rhodophyllus fuscomarginatus (PD. Orton) Mos., Röhrlinge-Blätterpilze, 3. Au f l .: 153. 1967.
Sel. descr. & figs. - Noordel. in Coolia 27: 61-63, fig. 2. 1984; P.D. Orton in Trans. Br. mycol. Soc. 43: 228-229, figs. 18, 19, 269, 411. 1960.
Pileus 15-60 mm, conico-campanulate, soon expanding to applanate, usually with pronounced, rarely weak umbo, with involute margin at first, weakly hygrophanous, when moist not translucently striate, sepia or reddish brown (Mu. 7.5 YR 5/4, 4/4) with slightly red purplish tinge, slightly pallescent on drying along radial streaks, innately radially mooth. Lamellae, L = about 50, I = 3-5-7, moderately crowded, free or adnexed, ventricose, pale pink (7.5 YR 8/2, 8/4) with minutely denticulate, brown edge. Stipe 25-60 x 2-7 mm, cylindrical, broadened towards base (up to 11 mm), entirely coarsely fibrillose with purplish brown fibrils on pale, almost white background (general appearance about 7.5 YR 6/4), in upper half with scattered fibrillose floccules, solid or fistulose. Context concolorous with surface, very brittle. Smell strongly farinaceous or reminiscent of coconut. Taste strongly farinaceous.
Spores 9.0-12.0 x 7.0-8.0 µm, Q = 1.2-1.5, Q av. = 1.4, 5-7-angled in side-view with blunt base. Basidia 35-50 x 8-12.5 µm, 4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge entirely sterile. Cheilocystidia 25-70 x 7.5-30 µm, lageniform to tibiiform, often distinctly capitate (2.5-7 µm), with brown intracellular pigment. Pileipellis a cutis with some ascending hyphae, made up of radially arranged, cylindrical to inflated hyphae up to 20 µm wide. Pigment brown, intracellular in pileipellis and upper pileitrama. Clamp-connections present in hymenium and covering layers.
Habitat & distr. - The only Netherlands' collection found on slightly acid sandy soil among Empetrum nigrum in old dunes. In Scotland frequently found in marshes and peat bogs, often in Sphagnum. Very rare (Terschelling: Grieltjeplak). Sept.-Nov.
