A large flat mushroom approximately 16cm across the almost flat cap. The cap shades from dark brown to pale fawn, showing cream where the darker layer appears to have split. The stipe is approximately 1.5cm in diameter and 10cms long. The ring is descending but not clearly defined right round the stipe. The gills are milk chocolate in colour. Another smaller specimen shows a similar upper surface but paler pinkish gills. These specimens were picked at the roadside under trees.
