This is one of the flowery-scented Hebelomas once all grouped as Hebeloma sacchariolens. Only fairly recently given its own species name, it has therefore been very seldom recorded as such in the UK, probably previously clumped under the name sacchariolens. The smell is sweetish and elusive and not really very pleasant. The cap is dry rather than viscid like the ‘weeping’ branch of the genus and has fine appressed fibrous scales more easily seen with a lens. The gills also are more rich reddish-brown in colour than Poison Pie species and the cystidia are narrowly clavate to clublike.
