“Chlorophyllum brunneum (Farlow & Burt) Vellinga
CAP 10–20 cm wide, convex becoming flat in age; disc cinnamon brown, smooth; margin colored like the disc, smooth at first, soon breaking up concentrically into smooth upturned scales with white fibrous flesh showing between the scales. GILLS free, white, becoming red or brown when bruised, darkening in age, close, edges finely fringed, in two or three tiers. SPORE PRINT white. STALK 10–20 cm long—about equal to the diameter of the cap, top 10–25 mm thick, club shaped, base with an abrupt bulb having a flattened top and often a ridged perimeter, stuffed, smooth, white, surface darkening when bruised, cut flesh staining reddish or saffron. RING thick, persistent, membranous, single edge, edge fibrous and frayed, movable like a ring on a finger, white above with a tough brown patch below. ODOR not remarkable.
