    I like this critter a lot, for its fuzzy fuzzy stem and general oomphy appearance -
    Paxillus (now Tapinella but I prefer the former name) atrotomentosus (osa),
    the Black Fuzzy Footed Pax.

    cheers!

    The gills of Paxillus easily fall off the cap if you scrape your thumb against them.
