Having Else Vellinga confirm your ID doesn’t hurt, either! ;)

Color, texture, stature

The cap color is a bit more olive-beige to tan-olive than the other Chlorophyllum, which are more solidly contrasting brown against white.

The texture of the scales in this species is more fibrillose and shaggy, without strongly developed flat smooth plaques at the tip, as in the others.

The stature is quite tall and slender, overall more elegant (more like the true Macrolepiota) than the other Chlorophyllum. C. molybdites is the most similar in stature, with a drumstick shape when young, and sometimes a real parasol-like shape in age.

I found the staining on this species to be a little more quick and dramatic than the other species, but that’s probably variable collection to collection.
