Lamellae
Gills adnexed, close, moderately broad, cream, in age cream-buff, the edges occasionally discoloring brown.

Stipe
Stipe 4.5-13 cm tall, 1.3-2.5 cm thick, more or less equal, cartilaginous, striate, sometimes flattened, to furrowed, cottony mycelium at the base, the latter continuing as a root-like projection; surface pruinose, cream to dingy-buff; flesh pale-buff, fibrous; veil absent.

Spores
Spores 4.5-6 x 2.5-3 µm, elliptical, smooth, amyloid; spore print white.

Solitary to scattered under redwood; fruiting from early to mid-winter.

Comments
Caulorhiza umbonata is one of the few medium to large mushrooms that fruits under coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens). The conic, when young, yellowish-brown cap with a pointed umbo, and pseudorhiza which extends deep into the substrate make it an easy species to identify.
