The cap is dry, densely covered with concentrically arranged orangey brown-coloured scales on a white to yellow background. Immature specimens bear a delicate white partial veil extending from the stem to the cap periphery.
Various including woodland and roadside verges on humus rich soil, and also often found under conifers.

Occasional in Leicestershire and Rutland.
