Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

This was growing in an area with douglas fir and madrone all by it’s lonesome. The pileus is 13 cm across and the stipe is 7 cm from the ground to the apex. It flares at the base and had flecks of something veil-like around it. Without really digging it up I couldn’t determine if there was a volva underground. The surface of the pileus seems to be covered in fine hairs and feels dry. Gills are brown.
