No specimen available

Tricholoma. Can’t key to genus, but brought one specimen home with me for drying if anyone wants to take a closer look. I thought T. pardinum at first, but this doesn’t look at all like Lincoff’s picture in Audubon Society Field Guide. Too large, too scaley, too many scales on stipe. Out-if-focus base of stipe photo shows brownish-yellow discolorations around numerous maggot holes. Pretty, but the odor was off-putting – similar to green corn. And now that I’ve found many of the dark reddish-brown Tricholomas are poisonous, I’m just as happy to contribute it to science.
