That’s because the name L. aspera was still deprecated, which I have now fixed.

You are right, according to VELLINGA the name Lepiota aspera is the one in current use. I deleted therefore my acutesquamosa suggestion and voted for aspera.
The name nevertheless didn’t change to Lepiota aspera but kept on being L. acutesquamosa – strange …

I think Lepiota aspera is the currently accepted name.

Thanks Curecat!

When I first saw that cortinate veil I could not believe it, thought it had to be insect webs of some kind, but no, that is the annulus.

That annulus is bizarre. All cottony at first, and then it looks like it shrinks back together after tearing away from the cap margin!
