secotioid-ish, give it a few thousand years… But no, the thick veil breaks when they emerge from button stage.

See, http://mushroomobserver.org/129950?q=17CXA

It has been the most commonly encountered fall Cort in the Shasta area the last two years.

this one was buried, with to all appearances a tougher than normal partial veil.

what puts it into the multiformis group? DNA?

and as far as odor, I forgot to mention – it smelled very strongly of fennel/licorice initially, but the odor faded very quickly.
