Ampulloclitocybe clavipes, commonly known as Club Foot is best identified by its club-shaped stem, which is swollen at the base and tapering toward the top and funnel-shaped cap with white girls that extend downward. It grows solitary or in small troops on soil in broad-leaf woods, favouring beech.
convex with a small boss, becoming plane to depressed in shape. It has a smooth surface. Cap colours are generally grey-brown, sometimes tinged olive, with a pale margin. Gills
are strongly decurrent and cream-yellow in colour, contrasting with the rest of the mushroom. There are some smaller gills in between the regular gills, and the gills are occasionally forked near the stem. The gill edges are straight in younger mushrooms and sometimes wavy (undulate) in older ones. Flesh
white, but slightly yellow at the base. Stem
bulbous base, its surface is covered in silky fibres, and it is the same colour as the cap.
the newer name for Clitocybe clavipes is Ampulloclitocybe clavipes.
