This specimen was very white all over with a prominent bulb and volva. It was growing in mixed douglas fir forest. The shaggy stem I have not seen before in the few of these I have observed, and I didn’t notice much of an annulus.

smithiana in youth is completely covered in a fluffy white and flocculent universal veil; both it and the flocculent annulus are easily lost due to age/handling. the extreme, spiky appearance of this particular stipe is probably just environmentally caused.
