Fruitbodies are stalked. Caps are up to 12 cm across, circular, convex to flat, becoming depressed at the centre, cinnamon to rust-brown or dark brown, hairy and weakly zonate.  Stalks are up to 4 cm tall by 1 cm wide, and   cinnamon to rust brown. Tubes are up to 5 mm deep with angular pores, sometimes becoming gill-like. Widespread but not common, this strange looking fungus fruits on the ground in hardwood forests.
