Description

Spore Print - white - slightly cream color.
This mushroom is a ringer for flavorubenscens. However, it is not that. Two problems
1 - it doesn't bruise red
2 - The spore is not smooth.

The stipe is fibrous, white inside but slightly hollow and darker at the middle. It will probably hollow as it ages. The stipe broke in half when I bent it but didn't snap in two crisply.

The gills are white, detached and notched.

It was growing on the ground in mixed oak, other hardwoods and pine.

The partial veil remnant can be seen on the type as thin ring or collar.

There may be slight, thin volva like remnants at the base but I can't be sure.

No significant smell noticed.

Veil remnants can be seen as patches on the cap. They were yellow and turned darker on the mature. The stem is light yellow.
The top of the cap could be peeled, inside flesh is white. No liquids coming out.

These organisms are classified as a kingdom, Fungi, which is separate from plants, animals, protists and bacteria. One major difference is that fungal cells have cell walls that contain chitin, unlike the cell walls of plants and some protists, which contain...
