The stipe is 100 - 200 (10 – 20 cm) × 15 – 30 mm (1.5 – 3 cm), subcylindric or slightly attenuate upwards, white, covered with white floccose squamules; the context is white; the stipe's basal bulb is 30 – 40 mm wide, ventricose, ovoid to subglobose, with its upper part covered with white, verrucose to granular volval remnants. The annulus is white; its upper surface bears fine, radial striations; and its lower surface, verrucose to conical warts. The annulus is often broken during expansion of the cap.
