Recognized by sight: Tom’s right, ocreata is un-decorated. Also, I’d be surprised if it gets that far north…

Notice the fibrils connecting the underside of the skirt to the stem, the very abrupt flattening of the top of the bulb, the dense sharply pyramidal warts, etc.

I’ve never seen that ornamentation on Ocreata before.

But it’s a cool mushroom for sure!
Could it be in the section Lepidella instead?
