It’s explained perfectly on page 262 (illustrated on pg. 62) in “Mushrooms of the Southeastern United States” and the picture is exactly like mine; however, the book claims this fruits between July and December, but I think many SWFL mushrooms have proved a few books wrong when it comes to fruiting times. cheers yall
