Recognized by sight: But can’t see enough detail in cap to be certain. If there are fibrils/scales, it is probably T. flavovirens.

Hi John…a reasonable first guess, at least based on the cap colors…

…albolanaripes starts out with pale, almost whitish gills that change to yellow; also it has a flocculent (there’s that darned helpful latin again!) partial veil, that makes the stipe below the annulus all fluffy, in contrast to a smooth-stiped Tricholoma. Scrolling MO I saw that these guys had fooled you once before; three’s a charm! Bet you won’t make that same mistake next time, and if so, NBD…they are both apparently edible.
