Cap size 4-6cm, central disc of yellow-ochre with tan margins. Radially streaked with brown under cuticle. Gills clay colored. Stipe 5-6cm. Flesh white, streaked with grey in stipe and marbled yellow-cream in cap, particularly under cuticle. Stipe noticeably bulbous. No lilac tones in flesh on section. However, stipe showed pale lilac colors when fresh. Growth was gregarious to cespitose under young hemlock in mixed hemlock, doug fir forest with alder at margin.


Did not see any sign of violaceous gills (per Smith) but another collection in the region was strongly violet toned.
In meltzers. Smith describes spores as 9-11 × 5-6 almond-shaped,roughened.
