glutinous annulus

Many species in the genus Pholiota have slimy or glutinous veils. P. velaglutinosus is one species that comes to mind, though this is not that species.

Partial veil

Odd partial veil for either genus. It’s more like the slimy-colloidal type you see in genera like Limacella than the membranous sort typical of Pholiota or the fibrous sort typical of Cortinarius. Note: I do NOT think this is a Limacella! No evidence of a slimy universal veil (or of any at all), for one thing.
