I doubt this lady has a name, although she’s quite distinctive.

Very nice photographs of an interesting specimen.

The tuberculate-striate cap margin (bumpy ridges between the grooves) is very clearly shown in your pictures. That’s not a rare character, but it can be helpful in recognizing something seen before.

This is the kind of material that would be great to dry for future study. If you are interested in collecting for scientific study, please email me through MO.

Very best,
