The fruitbody is 11.5 cm tall.
The unexpanded, convex cap is 3.7 cm in diameter; striations are 8 mm long.
The stipe taper toward both the apex and the base; it’s 7 mm in diameter at its widest section.

I came hoping to collect some edibles, but alas very few were found and I left Washington Crossing with a “contraband” of poisonous fungi instead. Indeed, Vaginatae ruled supreme today, and, unlike the other mushrooms I encountered in the park today, these fragile critters were surprisingly en pleine forme. I only found what looked like an old A. crenulata under white pines as the sole representative from the other sections.
