Very interesting, Ham and Eric.

The cap size is a little small for canescens, and…

The pileus is much darker than I have ever seen for that species. The cap margin is striate on a number of the specimens, which I have never seen in canescens. The universal veil on the lower stipe is in thin rings around the stipe instead of scattered warts on the top of the bulb that often cause cracking of the upper bulb into rectangular “mesas.”

Ham, if you can find this again, I’d like to examine well-dried material of it.

This is a puzzle to me at first glance.

Very best,
