When seen in situ almost black, becoming paler and more rust-colored in drying. Change takes place from the disk toward the margin. Pileus slightly striate, slightly mubonate?, later on, broadly umbilicate?
Gills venose-connected, and swollen or varicose, hence the specific name. Exterior of stem slightly rough, not polished.
