Three fruiting in a commercial planting area under redwood. I was unable to obtain a spore print. Entire mushroom was 8.3cm tall.
Pileus: slightly striate at margin, somewhat satiny, flesh rather thick at the umbo. 3cm across.
Gills: Pallid, attached and smelling of almond extract when cut.
Stipe: Bulbous at the base, with an interesting “casing” the same color as the pileus. When cut open the “casing” seemed entirely superficial. Extremely tough and fibrous—hard to cut.
