Notes:
A solitary specimen fruiting in very sandy soil at the edge of a dirt trail in mixed hardwoods and conifer forest. Can’t be certain if the matter on the cap is a natural part of this species or is the remains of the sandy soil which this mushroom pushed up through. Zooming in on my last two images (#8516 and 8517), I can clearly see sand granules and also some other matter that may be soil or warts.

This specimen can also be seen in Ob. #322378, found on a Missouri Mycological Society foray.
