Further Information

Notes (MWS) The commonest member of the genus, it is a common toadstool of woodland and grassland recognised by the dark flesh in the stem base and grey-brown hygrophanous cap. Earlier records, with those of other similar species, would have been confounded under the name of Melanoleuca melaleuca.
