Hygrophorus eburneus

Pileus
Cap 2.5-7 cm broad, convex with an inrolled margin, expanding to nearly plane with a low umbo or the disc depressed with an upturned margin; surface smooth to silky, slimy-viscid, white, occasionally faintly yellow in age; flesh white, soft, thick at the disc, thin elsewhere, unchanging; odor and taste mild.

Lamellae
Gills subdecurrent to decurrent, subdistant, moderately broad, waxy, white, sometimes faintly yellow in age.

Stipe
Stipe 4-12 cm tall, 0.5-1.5 cm thick, equal to tapering towards the base, often bent, stuffed, becoming hollow at maturity; surface finely scaled at the apex, smooth below, white, viscid; veil absent.

Spores
Spores 6.5-8 x 3.5-5 µm, smooth, elliptical; spore print white.

Habitat
Scattered in duff in hardwood/conifer woods; fruiting from early to mid-winter.

Edibility
Edible, but maybe too slimy to be of culinary value.

Comments
The combination of a viscid cap and stipe distinguishes this Hygrophorus from several other white waxy-caps in our area.
