The height of the yellow-brown float is up to 12-14 cm. The cap in adult specimens is almost flat, in young mushrooms it is convex ovoid. It has a golden, orange, brown color, in the center there is a small dark spot. There are grooves at the edges; there may be a little mucus over the entire surface of the cap. The cap is usually smooth, but some fungi may have some remnants of the blanket on its surface.
