This one is not documented in any of my field guides. And I could find much info online. A new species learned.

Yes, M. verrucipes has very distictive scaber like patches on the stipe, no other Melanoleuca has them.

Is it the presence of scaber like patches

of hairs on the stipe that fails to support alboflavida? Got to admit, that seemed a bit unusual to my memory. The field guides all mention hairs on the stem for alboflavida.
