I remember posting something like this earlier, and there was question about spores and stem scales. Maybe this will help clear up some of the questions.

SPORES dull brown (see last photo); STIPE minutely scaly, but scales are no darker than cap or rest of stipe; VEIL wispy fibrillose evanescent thing.
