Description:Entoloma allochroum Noordel. in Persoonia 11: 463. 1982. - Fig. 155.
Sel. descr. & figs. - Noordel. in Persoonia 11: 463-465, fig. 7. 1982.
Pileus 28-32 mm, about 10-12 mm high, expanded conical with slightly inflexed margin, subumbonate, hardly hygrophanous, translucently at margin only, with a slightly lilaceous, fairly dark grey-brown velutinous covering broken up in minute granular greyish brown floccules on rather pale pinkish grey background (covering Mu. 7.5 YR 3/2, 4/2, 5/2, background 7.5 YR 6/4 to 10 YR 5/3). Lamellae fairly crowded, adnexed to free, moderately broad, 5-6 mm, slightly ventricose, pale brownish-pinkish sordid cream (7.5 YR 8/2 to 7/4) with slightly irregular, concolorous edge. Stipe 53-60 x 3.5-4.5 mm, cylindrical with subclavate, 7-10 mm broad base, pale violaceous with dark purple violaceous fibrillose covering and darker minutely fibrillose squamules, especially in upper half, with sordid white tomentum at base. Context hyaline pale brownish grey in pileus, paler in stipe-apex with pale sordid wax-yellow tinge in base of stipe. Smell not distinctive. Taste not distinctive.
Spores 9.5-12.5 x 7.0-9.5 µm, Q = l.15-l.5, Q av. = l.35, 6-9-angled in side-view with rather pronounced angles, slightly thick-walled. Basidia 34-54 x 9.5-11.5 µm, (2-)4-spored, clamped. Lamella edge heterogeneous. Cheilocystidia 30-55 x 5-10 µm, irregularly cylindrical to flexuose, septate, often slightly thick-walled, scattered among basidia. Pileipellis a cutis with transitions to a trichoderm of cylindrical up to 40 µm wide septate hyphae. Pigment brownish, intracellular in pileipellis, frequently also incrusting some hyphae of pileipellis and upper pileitrama. Clamp-connections abundant in hymenium and covering layers.
Habitat & distr.- Solitary, terrestrial in garden. Very rare (Aerdenhout and The Hague). Aug.
