wasn’t too sure about the rough skin, because of some of the photos floating around out there: http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/29633?obs=14423&q=Wuwc

still an edible species, though, which is interesting

(no worries, i’m not planning to cook or eat it, esp. given my lack of experience)
