the stipe gets crooked where this wool is. Could be from basal felt indeed.

but I don’t think it is an “annulus” that would represent the remaining part of any partial veil, could it have something to do with the white mat at the base on picture 3? Oh well, I’ll take a look at this sometime later under a better microscope. Thanks for the help.

I am no expert in marasmioid fungi.

But I do not know one with a ring. I am not familiar with the situation in America though. How are the shapes of the cystidia? In your pic I do not see them well. Are they mycenoid-ventricose?

is now done and I can photograph it if you think it is necessary, but it is white. Spores are elliptical and approximately 10-12 × 5, and so might be pretty typical Marasmius spores. I had two of these specimens and they both had this ring closer to the base of the stipe than the cap.

Hmm, very good question,

if the gills were brownish I would call that Pholiotina. Obviously there were no spores?

Ring around the stipe?

Why does it have that ring around the stipe?
