Cap is pink-tinged, leather brown and smooth, silky, and funnel-shaped, typically with a wavy margin. The flesh is soft and white with a fruity smell. Gills are closely spaced, white and deeply extended downward. Stem is similarly colored as the cap. It is smooth and more or less equal apart from a slightly swollen base. The mushroom has no ring.Spores are white-cream color colored.
