Lepiota in sect. Lepiota

This is definitely a Lepiota species, in sect. Lepiota. Because of the floccose stipe below the annulus, and the typical scaly and rather pale pileus. The spores should be fusiform or penguin-shaped, and the pileus covering made up of long long elements, with at their base often short cells. Clamp connections present.

I had a confusion with the lepiota I had found generally out here… This one was too large for the others I’d found and too scaly or fibrous..(whatever the technical name) although the colour and the general pattern seemed to match.. There is another one I have listed.. but it seemed different in some ways..
