Pileus 10-35 mm, convex, then applanate, (deeply) umbilicate with involute margin when young, not distinctly hygrophanous, translucently striate up to centre, when young sepia, then rather pale yellow-brown with darker brown, granulose-squamulose centre, glabrous or radially fibrillose towards margin. Lamellae, L = 20-36, I= 3-7, moderately crowded, adnate to subdecurrent. triangular, then segmentiform, white then pale pink, with entire, concolorous edge. Stipe 25-60 x 1-3(-4.5) mm, cylindrical or compressed. moderately dark to pale blue often fading to brown with age, glabrous, polished, sometimes pruinose at apex, at base white tomentose, solid or narrowly fistulose. Context concolorous with surface in pileus, in stipe long retaining the blue colour of the surface. Smell none or slightly herbaceous. Taste indistinct.
Spores (7.0-)8.0-10.0(-11.0) x 6.5-7.0 (-8.0) µm. Q = 1.15-1.75, Q av. = 1.3-1.5, ellipsoid in outline with 5-6 angles in side-view. Basidia 25-54 x 6.5-10.5 µm, 4-spored, clampless. Lamella edge fertile. Cystidia absent. Pileipellis a trichoderm at centre, more like a cutis at margin, made up of 7.5-20 µm wide hyphae with cylindrical to clavate up to 31 µm wide terminal cells. Pigment brownish, intracellular in pileipellis. Brilliant granules usually present in pileitrama. Clamp-connections absent.
Habitat & distr. - Solitary or in small groups in poorly manure semi-natural grassland on more or less calcareous soil. Very rare (Heythuysen: Grote Moost). Widespread in N., w and C. Europe from sealevel up into subalpine zone. July-Sept.
