The color varies very widely from white to brown and darkens with age at times. The flesh of the gills is a little thick. The odor is mild and has an unpleasant taste.
Gills: The Gills are attached to the stem, appear decurrent and the gills are easily separated from the cap as a layer. The color initially is white but turns buff with age.

Odor and Taste: Odor is mild and not distinct or associated with any particular smell. Taste is unpleasant or bitter.
Spore Print: White.
Spores: The Size of the Spores ranges from 5-7 × 3.5-5 µm. They are elliptical, ornamented. They are amyloid. The spores appear spiny with warts which are about 0.4u.
Habitat: They are saprobic and are commonly found scattered, gregarious in arcs or rings, mostly under the debris of conifers.
Edibility: Inedible. Though the mushroom is not lethal or toxic, it has an unpleasant taste so it is not palatable.
