Recognized by sight: A common, South Eastern lepidella in the Fall, with persistant, pointy white warts. I may be going out on a (volval) limb here, since I have never seen this in the field, but if this isn’t a abrupt basal bulb, I don’t know what is!

The mushroom is wet because I sprayed it with a squirtgun to clean it before taking the photo. The technique works better for some mushrooms than for others.

Yes, I think abrupta it is…

This is a very typical abrupta except for the “juiciness,” which I don’t understand. It looks like somebody chewed a mouthful of cherries over it.

Check out the pic at higher magnification. The rings around the bulb are very typical of the species. When the cap opens and the ring separates from the gills and cap margin, there will be a striking array of fibrils connecting the underside of the annulus to the stipe.
