Remarks (internal):Within the group of tricholomatoid species of subgenus Rhodopolia, only a few species have well-developed cheilocystidia. Entoloma noordeloosii Hauskn., known from Central Europe, has larger spores and lacks incrusting pigment. Entoloma inusitatum Noordel. et al., another widespread European species, differs by smaller basidiomes with sordid brown colour, larger spores, and more intensely incrusted hyphae in the uppermost layer of the pileus. Entoloma kallioi Noordel. is a much darker species with filiform cheilocystidia (Noordeloos 2004). No similar species could be found in Horak (1980).

Macrocharacters - Pileus 80-130 mm broad, plano-convex with applanate centre and straight margin, hygrophanous, slightly translucently striate at margin, pale brownish, pallescent on drying in radial streaks, glabrous, radially rugulose. Lamellae crowded, adnate-emarginate, to 10 mm broad, white then pinkish with irregular concolorous edge. Stipe 140-160 x 17-20 mm, cylindrical, white, innately longitudinally fibrillose, glabrous, base with white tomentum. Flesh white. Odour farinaceous then reminiscent of hazel nuts. Taste mild.
Microcharacters - Spores 7.0-9.2 x 6.0-7.5 µm, Q = 1.0-1.3, subisodiametrical, with 6-7 angles in side view. Basidia 37-54 x 9-14 µm, narrowly clavate, clamped. Lamellae edge heterogeneous. Cheilocystidia 15-50 x 3-10 µm, cylindrical or irregularly shaped, colourless. Pileipellis a cutis of 2-4 µm wide, cylindrical sometimes slightly ascending hyphae. Pigment intracellular, in some hyphae of subpellis slightly incrusting. Hymenophoraland pilei-trama regular, made up of short, inflated elements, 40-120 x 5-10 µm. Clamps numerous in the pileipellis.
Habitat - On soil in broad-leaved forest (Quercus mongolica, Tilia amurensis, Acer spp., Alnus spp.).
