Gray-to blush capped mushroom with a slightly waxy surface and highly convoluted cap edges. Gills are attached and sinuate with many alternating short and long gills forming a wavy pattern. At some angles the gills can look like long teeth over the stipe. Stipe is thick, white with gray/blush undertones, and striated. Spore print is light ochre with hints of pink/peach. Entolomas are typically pink-gilled and account for around 1000 known species of fungi. They are typically saprobes of leaf litter but have also been seen with mycorrhizal associations.
Growing in grass and pine needles in a field (with many pines nearby) in Northwest Georgia (Floyd County), US.
