A pale grey-white cap and decurrent, pale pink gills, combined with a strong smell of fresh bread dough, distinguish this species.

Cap white or light grey or yellow, convex to funnel-shaped that may have an inrolled margin, sticky when moist. Gills decurrent, spaced together rather closely, and whitish, although they often develop a pinkish hue in age. Stem is central or off-center and is similar in colour to the cap.

Many mushrooms are poisonous and some are lethally poisonous. It can be very hard to distinguish between an edible and a poisonous mushroom. We recommend, because of this, that you don't eat wild mushrooms at all, and this site does not contain any information about the edibility or toxicity of the mushrooms listed here.

Although efforts have been made to ensure accuracy on this website, the information may contain errors and omissions and should not be relied upon and be used as any basis for eating any plants or mushrooms.
