H. compressa group

This is a rather common variant of H. compressa, at least locally, typically found later in our season in Oregon. Similar to H. compressa, with white stipe and rib usually extending through the base of the stipe; but with white or off-white in-folded cap, often shaped like a saddle. I have not seen it identified to my satisfaction. It may be a distinct variant.
