C. lepidopus was previously considered a variant of C. fornicatus which I think is still a species complex. So the general appearance is as fornicatus. There are scales on the base of the stipe and sometimes on the cap.
If cut in two there is a colour change, a pink flush in the main context maybe with a little blue.
Although I have seen all these I have not seen this species enough to say what variation there is. It seems to be that the scales can be very well developed or not from what I have seen.
