The other option is a species of section Amidella that I can’t recognize. The floccose stem is more like an Amidella than one of the Limbatulae. Their stems are often smooth with a distinct, membranous partial veil.

The Florida Limbatulae are not too difficult to separate microscopically. The microscopic characters used by Bas were spore size-shape and presence/absence of clamp connections at the bases of basidia.

Odor can be helpful, but is not always easy to detect.

A. mutabilis (which this is probably NOT) has a raspberry sherbert staining reaction and the odor of anise. You weren’t that lucky this time.

Very best,
