but I know this species from a few different habitats. Always on more or less sandy soil (which is a typical pine habitat), but not only with pine.
The dark colour is typical. They are slightly hygrophanous, but not fading, the brown hue in them just turns a little more greyish.

Hello Irene,

I see some brownish needles of Pinus at your photos. This is a good evidence because the German Entoloma specialist Gerhard Wölfel told me that he knows E. vernum only from Pinus forests in spring.

Also the fruitbodies shouldn’t have any smell – right?

Best regards, Andreas
