Amanita or a Lepiota with non-dextrinoid spores? pale scaly cap, (actually pale brownish at home) Stem floccose cap 2.5, stem 5.5 floccy below. This seems pretty small to be an Amanita, but I do not know much about them. Spores non-dextrinoid (I did not see them as being amyloid, but maybe they are) small, narrow-elliptical, under 5 microns long. Although the pictures of this are not very good, the small spores make me think it ought to be a different species.

Spores under 5 microns long? That would pretty much eliminate the possibility that this thing is an Amanita, but it sure looks like one. Maybe the multiplication factor or something else related to the spore measurements hiccoughed? ??
