I’m in Greece right now and can’t reach for my references, but I am pretty sure I collected something like this one in SPSP earlier in the year in large quantities. If memory serves me right, it came roughly in the group around C. balteatus. Will write more when I can say more… We have at least two fairly pale, non-emarginated bulb, no KOH reaction, similarly statured Phlegmacia in our area. One is from Live Oak and the other common under Tanoak. Will publish extensive reference sheets later.

Multiformes group?

The combination of a distinctly viscid cap in pale ochraceous colour and a stipe that has NO marginated bulb is quite extraordinairy. It looks somewhat similar to what we call C. corrosus in germany and what should be quite similar to your C. albidus Peck. But those should have a marginated bulb. I would search this one in sect. Multiformes because of the stipe characters, the slimy cap and the overall appearance.
