Stipe
Stipe 4-15 cm long, 1-6 cm broad, solid, equal; flesh tough, white, developing similar colors as the cap; veil sheathing from the base, thick, white, forming a cottony annulus.

Spores
Spores 5-7 X 4.5-5.5 µm, subglobose to short elliptical, non-amyloid, smooth. Spore print white.

Habitat
Scattered to gregarious in soil or duff under tanbark oak, madrone and pine; from late fall to mid-winter.

Edibility
Edible and highly prized by many for its large size and fragrant aroma. Some eat it raw in salads, while others prefer it cooked.

Comments
Called Armillaria ponderosa in older field guides, Tricholoma magnivelare is recognized by its large size, white color which bruises orange-brown, a sheathing cottony veil, and spicy odor. It occurs more commonly in the Pacific Northwest, where it is harvested commercially, than in the S.F. Bay Area.
