Description: Original observation #253327 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: A trio fruiting at the border of a wood-chip mulch bed in suburban lawn. Largest cap: 11 cm. Stipe: 8 cm. X 1.5 cm. White rhizomorphs at base. No reaction to KOH. Obtained purplish-brown spore print. Though the stipe on this specimen lacks a ring, I feel it's a good match for this ID. Since the specimen is a bit on the old side it may have lost its ring, leaving only faint evidence of a ring zone, below which the stipe is covered with very tiny dark brown scales.
