|Formerly known as Lepiota acutesquamosa and Lepiota aspera. Growing
in September from loose, humus rich soil near a rotten log . Immature
gills are protected by a fine, web-like partial veil. Brown, pointed cap
scales continue onto the partial veil.
|The partial veil will break away, leaving a ring on the upper stem. Gills are
free from the stem; white spore print. Lacks a bulbous base or cup-like
structure (volva) as seen with Amanita mushrooms.
