Zaca stem is squamulous as seen in the pictures

These specimens look to me closer to M. nudipes than to M. viridis. I don’t know if the former species exists in North America, but some authors take M. olivaceum as synonymous. The main macroscopic difference between M. viridis and M. nudipes is that the first has squamulous stem while it is smooth on the latter. I was not able to see squamulous stems in this material, but a close up could help.
