No, not that I am aware of. Never heard of Sacred genus.

No, there isn’t ;((

Now they’re carving up Armillaria. What’s next, Amanita? Is no genus sacred?


Flocculent enough

It certainly is flocculent enuf for genus Floccularia on its stipe. So pale, tho…must be one of the “alba” varieties…

Looks a lot like

especially the top of the cap, and note any nearby trees/shrubs. If Tricholoma, it should have scales of some sort of color on the cap.

a young Matsutake. So probably somewhere around Tricholoma, Armillaria, Catathelasma. Gills look off-white and with notched attachment, making Amanita unlikely, though not quite ruling it out.

Photos of the top of the cap and of the stipe base would help. So might a spore print (though everything I listed above tends to have a white or very pale one).
