The common name for these is Knight, and they tend to appear late in the season, often fruiting into early winter. They have no ring (with two exceptions). Observe the cap surface: is it greasy, dry, scaly, or hairy? Some have strong smells, often mealy; in some this can only be observed when the mushroom is cut or crushed.
