I think I misread your comment about the texture of the outer side of the partial veil and you associating this feature with A. polypyramis. Now I think you comment is just a casual remark rather than an attempt at identificaiton. My apologies…

I guess Igor that Lepidellas and most mushrooms

that have an annulus have their gills covered in veil before the cap expands because an annulus IS a fallen partial veil which is in turn tissue covering the gills. I probably misinterpreted your question?? I think maybe what you’re getting at is the idea that Lepidellas have appendiculate margins on the cap, caused by partial veil remants being torn from covering the gills as the cap expands and finally falling away on the stipe. I’m more accustomed to thinking of the red/brown stains of big white warty Lepidellas as a characteristic of Amanita atkinsoniana than A. polypyramis but then polypyramis is a southern mushroom and I really don’t have much experience with it so to make a short story long, I dunno about stains and polypyramis but if Rod reads this I’m sure he could clear that up.

Would it be true to say that all lepidellas with an annulus have their gills covered in veil before the cap expands? To your knowledge, does A. polypyramis develop red-brown stains on the stipe?
