Pileus 10-20 mm, conical, only slightly expanding with age, with or without depressed centre, with straight sometimes crenulate margin, hygrophanous, when moist translucently striate up to centre, at centre and oil striae very dark brown-grey to almost black (Mu. 10 YR 3/2), towards margin and between striae (slightly) paler (10 YR 4/4), minutely innately radially fibrillose to almost glabrous, shiny. Lamellae, L = 15-30, I = 0-3, moderately distant to distant, narrowly to broadly adnate, segmentiform to ventricose up to 4 mm broad. pale grey, then pink. finally brown-pink (finally almost 5 YR 5/3-4), with minutely fimbriate, concolorous edge. Stipe 20-45 x 1-2 mm, cylindrical, sometimes broadened at base, pale brown, paler than pileus, glabrous. solid. Context thin, almost concolorous with surface in pileus, slightly paler to almost white in inner part of stipe. Smell farinaceous. Taste farinaceous.
Spores 9.5-14.0(-14.5) x 8.0-10.5 µm, Q = 1.1-1.5, Q av. = 1.35, irregularly 4-9-angled in side-view. Basidia 25-54 x 8.5-13 µm. 4- rarely also 2-spored, clamped. Lamella edge heterogeneous. Cheilocystidia 35-80 x 7.5-16 µm, (broadly) fusiform to lageniform, rarely lecythiform, neck 2.5-9 µm wide, usually abundant, but mixed with basidia. Pileipellis a cutis, rarely with transitions to a trichoderm, made up of radially arranged, cylindrical to slightly inflated 6-13 µm wide hyphae with scattered tufts of clavate terminal elements up to 17 µm wide. Pigment intracellular in pileipellis and upper pileitrama. Brilliant granules absent. Clamp-connections present.
Habitat & distr.- In poorly manured grassland with Juniperus on slightly acidified, but basically calcareous loam (Netherlands), in Sphagnum-bogs and subalpine meadows (C. Europe). Very rare (Winterswijk: Willinks Weust). Widespread but rare in W. and C.Europe. Aug.-Nov.
