Recognized by sight: the stout, stocky stature, and very scaly stipe are distinctive. But it doesn’t look like H. sinapizans s.s. (although Mike Beug and others use this name for a similar taxon), and it is in the wrong habitat/distribution for H. insigne, which it does resemble. So. I. Don’t. Know.
