I could see no salient features in the melted mushroom on that table on Sunday. This is obviously NOT calyptratoides, which has a gray-brown cap, a distinctive semi-tranlucent stipe, reminescent of a tallow candle, and an evanescent annulus. This is just a sad, end of the season coccora. There are plenty of photos on MO of the real calyptratoides for comparisons sake.
