Floccularia albolanaripes

Pileus
Cap 3-15 cm broad, convex, expanding to nearly plane, sometimes with a low umbo; margin incurved becoming decurved at maturity, young sporocarps often appendiculate from veil fragments; surface sticky when moist, appressed fibrillose to squamulose, brownish at the disc shading to a yellowish margin; context thick, white, except a thin yellowish zone below the cuticle, unchanging; odor and taste mild.

Lamellae
Gills close, adnexed to notched, moderately broad, edges toothed, pallid at first, then yellowish.

Stipe
Stipe 3-9 cm tall, 1.5-3.5 cm thick, solid, becoming stuffed at maturity, equal to tapering to an enlarged base; surface white to cream at the apex more or less glabrous, covered below with coarse, white scales, the latter often arranged in concentric zones and tending to become yellowish (at least the edges) in age; partial veil cottony-floccose leaving fragments on the young cap margin or forming a fragile, often torn, superior cottony ring.

Spores
Spores 6-7.5 x 3.5-4.5 µm, elliptical, smooth, weakly amyloid; spore print white.

Habitat
Solitary or in small groups under conifers; fruiting from late fall to mid-winter.

Edibility
Edible and excellent, a greatly under appreciated mushroom.

Comments
An attractive mushroom, Floccularia albolanaripes is also distinctive. It is recognized by a yellowish-brown, appressed fibrillose cap which is often appendiculate with veil fragments when young, ragged gill edges, and shaggy white to yellowish scales on the stipe below the veil.
