Description:Two different colour forms: pink and dark brown. Holotype is pink. Pileus 0.6–2.1 cm in diameter; when young low convex, then applanate, slightly depressed, or low convex, sometimes with papilla, pink pilei often with a densely undulating margin; rather dark pink (ca. S20Y50M60) with darker “eye”, or paler pink (S00Y30M30-ca.Y20M20C00), in one collection dark brown (S80Y50M40); delicate short white hairs especially when young, or smooth; dry, hygrophanous, translucently striate. Lamellae up to 3 mm broad, usually broadly adnate or shortly decurrent, more rarely emarginate, moderately crowded, sometimes furcate; in pink form first white, then yellowish, edge concolorous; in brown form first greyish or pale grey (S30Y20M10), then darker grey (S40Y30M20), becoming paler towards the edge; edge usually even. Stipe 1.5–3.6 cm long, 1.5–8 mm wide; equal, broadening towards base, or clavate, rarely flattened, base roundish; in pink form concolorous with pileus, slightly paler, slightly more orange (ca.S00Y40M30), or slightly more yellow, especially when drier; in brown form concolorous with pileus or slightly greyer (S80Y40M30); dry, delicately white fibrillose or flocculose in the middle and lower part, apex occasionally slightly pruinose, base white pubescent, fistulose. Context concolorous with surface or pale greyish pink in pink form. Smell indistinct. Taste indistinct or slightly farinaceous. Spores (8.0) 8.2–9.2–10.3 (10.7) × (7.0) 7.1–7.9–8.9 (9.2) µm, range of mean values 9.0–9.5 × 7.8–8.1 µm, Q = (1.06) 1.08–1.16–1.25 (1.28), range or mean Q values 1.15–1.17 (40 spores from 2 fruitbodies, both colour forms); subisodiametrical. Basidia 30.5–39–53 × 10–11.5–13 µm (n = 26), 4-spored. Cystidia not observed. Pileipellis: pink form: hyphae hyaline or slightly brownish, rarely with slight incrustations; brown form: hyphae with abundant internal brown pigment diffuse and as clumps, incrustations not observed; terminal cells cylindrical or with tapering apex, narrow or rather broad, usually rather long. Stipitipellis: terminal cells usually long cylindrical, or narrowly clavate, rarely subcapitate or somewhat inflated in the middle. Clamps abundant in all structures.
