Third known locality, I think.
Medium to largish mushrooms. Free gills white to creamy, becoming yellower with fringed reddish-brown edges in age. Stipe squat, bulbous-based with a subvolvate look, partial veil bandlike but tightly appressed. Cap whitish, fibrillose and slightly shaggy to nearly glabrous in age. Flesh solid, whitish, staining obscurely reddish-brown in some spots. Odor strong when cut – like blue cheese. On heavy clay soil in area where milk thistle had overgrown for many years, under Live Oak.
