Could that be because this is an older specimen, nearly planar (flat-capped)? And looking at the photo looking down at the cap, I can see some veil remnants still adhering to the rim, but not a lot. I think we have a hard time identifying this species. I remember something like it at the OMS show several years ago, and it ended up not being displayed because there was too much controversy surrounding it.
It’s just that I haven’t imagined squamosa that pale and smooth and without a ring..
According to Aurora, S. ambiqua has lots of veil remnants hanging to the edge of the cap rim (this doesn’t, but it is an older, more plane specimen); S. riparia has a stipe less than 1cm across. I think the stipe was more than 1cm across.
but why not ambigua or riparia..?
