Cap: knobbed, flaccid, radially grooved, 60 mm diameter. Stem: rooting, clubbed, 115 mm long, 7 mm diameter at the base tapering to 4 mm at the cap. Gills: free, close. Data for the juvenile are: Cap: bell-shaped/closed, velvety/floccose, 20mm tall, 20mm diameter. Stem: club-shaped, 50 mm long, 10 mm diameter at the base tapering to 5 mm at the cap. Gills: apparently close, free.

Observed at two locations along the disused incline railway between Koko Head Regional Park and the summit of Koko Crater. The juvenile and one of the “adults” were collected and imaged to facilitate description.
