S. floccopus appears to like the eastern half of the United States. Your portion of the Great Lakes region appears to have similar geological features: older rock, abundant calcium. When you compare this collection with other collections of S. floccopus on MO, the big difference seems to be the more errect scales on the cap. I’d guess those are more mature specimens, too. Surface mushroom features often darken with age and dehydration. A pretty good match. If you suggest it, I will certainly back your suggestion, since you suggested it first.

Don’t often find this with the veil still attached to the pileus. What do you think the species is?
