The diagnostic features of this species are: (1) the poorly defined ixocutis; (2) the copious pallid veil; (3) the shape of the spores and the fact that they are practically smooth and are not dextri- noid; (4) the agglutinating cheilocystidia as described; (5) the narrow gills, and these grayish when young; and (6) the darkening stipe. It fruited in great abundance in the type locality and the basidiocarps were found to retain their features for periods of up to ten days. Smith 89471 is designated as the type because of the more detailed informa- tion available on it. The collection 6235 made by Solheim was from Nash Fork Campground, Albany County, Wyoming at ± 10,000 ft. elevation.
