It belongs to the white rot fungus and is a medium-sized agaric having a highly open and convex crown, nearly flat, with a diameter of 3–10 centimetres (1–4 inches). Underneath, it has several whitish radial plates attached to the foot, subsequently converting to a brownish-grey tint, and light elliptic spores of 8–11 by 5–7 micrometers.

The white fibre foot is normally curved, with a membranous ring on the upper half which rapidly changes to tobacco brown due to the dropping spores.  When very young, its coloration may be reddish-brown and subsequently change to a light brown shade, more ochre towards the core, whiter around its border.
