I found my notes on this species.
Cespitose clusters under Scots Pine. Odor of anise, taste mild. Caps 20 cm diameter, yellowish tan with a whitish margin, shiny, and looks like tiny appressed fibrils with a light green tint. Margin incurved- decurved. Gills close, narrow and adnate with two tiers of lamellulae, whitish drying yellow brown. Stipe 3-6 cm long x 10-18 mm at apex; breaks with a snap leaving a jagged edge, solid, and equal or narrowing towards the base.

States that fact in his description of Leucopaxillus.

A good supporting trait…

for a Leucopaxillus ID is that the layer of gill material peels easily away form the rest of the cap context.

I have found what I believe to be L. albissimus under planted pine fairly early in the season (June).
