I was having a very difficult time identifying this mushroom and took to shroomery.org for help. Literally within minutes someone pointed me in the right direction. In the mushroom identification books I have they don't focus on that scaly top, which you kind of have to do because it's truly a dead give away. One thing I've learned about the most helpful identification books is that an illustration often serves better than a photograph because an illustration can pay special attention to a a certain feature unique to a species.
