Clitocybe gibba is a hardwood-loving mushroom that features a pinkish-tan cap that becomes fairly deeply vase-shaped by maturity. Its pale, crowded gills run down the stem, which is pale in comparison to the cap. It grows solitary or in small troops on soil in broad-leaf woods and on heaths from July to September.

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 deeply decurrent (deeply extended downward), white or pale buff gills that are narrow and quite crowded. Stem similarly coloured as the cap. It is smooth and more or less equal apart from a slightly swollen base. The mushroom has no ring. Spore print white.

Microscopic Features: Spores are smooth, ellipsoidal to pip-shaped, measuring 5.5-8μm in length and 3.5-5μm in width.

Synonyms: Infundibulicybe gibba is a synonym.

Many mushrooms are poisonous and some are lethally poisonous. It can be very difficult to distinguish between an edible and a poisonous mushroom.
