A cap that is pale cream to silvery-white and sometimes has a darker yellow to brown colouration towards the central umbo.

The gills are rust or cinnamon brown and dense, and are adnexed or free and release brown to reddish-brown elliptical spores. The stem is cap-coloured, elongated, thin, hollow, and more or less equal along its length, which can bear minuscule striations or hairs.
