Hygrophorus leucophaeo-ilicis is a white Hygrophorus with a spot of brown on the centre of its thin cap. Though its cap may achieve 10 cm diameter, it’s always weak and viscous in wet weather. Only when very young, its cap is convex shape with a rolled edge. Soon the cap develops until flat with just a breast in the centre with straight, acute margin. The grills are white and loose, slightly decurrent on the white, thin stipe with acute foot.
Hygrophorus leucophaeo-ilicis is edible, though not collected. As the name states (ilicis for Quercus ilex), Hygrophorus leucophaeo-ilicis indeed grows in evergreen woodlands.
The species Hygrophorus roseadiscoideus is quite similar. The shape and the pattern of colors are common. However H.roseadiscoideus has a pink shade instead of brown. Both are edible and grow mainly in evergreen oak woods.
