Description

Under Monterey Cypress near Agaricus californicus - landscaped area with thick cypress duff and supplemental watering

Gills very free, fused to form a sort of "collarium"
Partial veil sooty gray, forming bands on the stipe.
Cap with a "hammered"/rivulose appearance, thinly viscid

Odor farinaceous

Reminiscent of Hygrophorus olivaceoalbus

My first encounter with this species. Almost certainly undescribed but may be a Tulloss nom. prov.
