Veil is somewhat cobwebby when enclosing gills. Remants on stem are kind of a cross between a membranous and a cobwebby veil. There are tufts of black "hairs" on the surface of the cap. The center of the cap is a lighter yellow tan and the margin a deeper brown. The largest of the caps was about 5 inches across. Not quite right for solidipes (the veil isn't very substantial), but not for nabsnona either (+ black tufts)
