| Tricholoma caligatum
|Found late summer into fall. Young specimens will have a partial veil that
covers and protects the gills; this will fall away and leave a large, frill-edged
ring on the stem. The stem is white above the ring and brown with scales
below. A similar species, Tricholoma magnivelare, grows under conifers.
|Brown caps can be up to 13cm (5 inches) across,
with a fibrous, scale-like appearance; large ring on
stem; very bitter taste; grows with oak trees nearby.
