Brief Description: [See More | Edit]

The important characters for this species include the following: (1) the thick stipe (8-12 mm); (2) the stipe not darken- ing; (3) the odor and taste are raphanoid; (4) a pinkish cinnamon pileus; (5) a simple ixocutis over the pileus; (6) large fusoid-ventricose cheilocystidia with at least some of them with the apex acute; and (7) the rusty brown color of the hypodermium as revived in KOH. It is very close to H. fastibile but differs in slightly smaller ellipsoid spores and the evenly pale-colored pileus when young and fresh. The spores appear smooth under a high-dry, 4-mm objective which is quite differ- ent from the distinct ornamentation of the spores as illustrated by Horak for H. fastibile.
