I’d like to know

whether a veil was present, the spore color, and gill attachment. It certainly could be Lepiota sect. Echinatae. But it might be something altogether different.

The scales look too spaced to be typical Lepiota to me. This could almost be a Lentinus, in the style of Arora’s L. ponderosa.

While the photos looks like this is fruiting terrestrial, it also might be fruiting on buried wood. All we have to go on are the photos.

I think that even without seeing the gills

The stipe texture and cap texture are unique enough to call this Lepiota sect. Echinatae.

Forgive me if this question is silly but since we don’t know the color of the gills/spores nor whether the gills are attached or free what makes Lepiota sect. Echinatae promising? I can understand it as a could be but given the lack of information it seems to me that Agaricales makes the most sense.


Photos of underside?
