I couldn’t see it in the thumbnail, but there is a partial veil on this mushroom.

It’s very long and hanging close to the stipe with a strongly striate upper surface. This is a species of the Caesareae.

No herbarium specimen says MO.

Justin did you look at the stem? If so, how would you describe it?

Very best,
