Can be found singularly or in clusters under deciduous or conifer trees. It is widely distributed and common. The cap can be 1.5-4cm wide, plane or uplifting often with a central depression. The gills are attached to the stem, or rarely run down the length of the stem; distant, or close; pinkish flesh color, becoming vinaceous. The stem is 2- 6.5cms long and is coloured the same as the cap. It has a faint to mild radish smell
This mushroom is edible but literature says that it is not particularly good.
