I originally keyed this mushroom out to C. laniger in Arora, D., Mushrooms Demystified, but was unsure. The photos at http://mushroomhobby.com/…; are sure convincing me that it is C. laniger

OK Dimi, I’ll bite…what are the salient macro characters on this one?

One of the distinctly looking Corts. Rarely are they so obvious. Nice photos. Pay attention to Debbie — dry the material for 98% of the collections if you want to even have a chance to know what it is. Here is a photo:
