This small fungus is easy to identify but only occasionally encountered. All parts typically are rose to pinkish, but fade in age, the stipe is centrally attached or somewhat off-center and has pink tomentum at its base. The gills are decurrent on a more or less funnel-shaped cap with an arched, often lobed, narrowly inrolled margin. The fragrant, fruity odor of cinnamon candy or grape soda is distinctive.
