is extra large, thick, and ropey, Liz. I’ve seen nothing similar, except for Stropharia rugosa-annulata. Quite unusual in my experience.

BTW, love your avatar!

Yes, mycelium from the base of the stalk.

taken from the base of the stipe? If so, that suggests the fungus is saprophytic, not mycorrhizal. But the cap and gills resemble Laccaria.
