Sorry I do not still have it. This was a series of pictures I took after we had an unusual snowfall. The elevation was around 900’ in the East Bay hills.

The yellow base of the stipe is interesting!

This features leaves me wondering weather this is a Gomphidius or a Chroogomphus, but my instinct says Chroogomphus. It would be interesting to see this specimen if you still have it.
