The length of the legs of a cylindrical shape is from 6 to 18 cm. Below it expands and has a darker color. In young mushrooms, scaly coating and pubescence occur. The pulp is light and hard, sweet in taste, gives off a pleasant smell. When exposed to air, the hat turns a little pink, and the legs turn dark. This reducer has no doubles; it grows from July to early November. This mushroom is usually not wormy.
