Interesting… anticipating reading Rod’s comments.

Lack of ring and relatively short marginal striations lead away from Caesareae… although there are a few short-stiate species I believe that the ones with large fruit bodies generally have long striations. Smooth cap surface and lack of appendiculate cap margin lead away from Amidella.
