These satiny dry white-to buff cap and stem mushrooms grow in connected clusters in fall in forest leaf and/or conifer debris. The cap margin is initially inrolled and occasionally becomes lined. It becomes flattish with maturity. The broadly attached white-buff gills are very close and narrow. The stem base has white basal mycelium. The spore print is pale pinkish. Lepista subconnexa is saprotrophic. This is in the Tricholomataceae family of the Agaricales order.
