Recognized by sight: one of the limbate lepidellas. in addition to the normally flocculent velar material on the lower stipe, this example also has a short membranous limb. it also has signs of what Tulloss calls the “yellowing disease,” where some lepidellas show yellow staining on their normally white fbs.
Used references: Tulloss first suggested that this was one of the unusual limbate lepidellas (the friable UV at the base also has a little membranous limb), and also at one time considered CA to be a hotbed for them. Wasn’t so long ago that we cooperated happily on many amanita topics.
