found dried spec if u have further questions
A bulb is not the same as the volva. The volva may cover all or part of the base of the stipe, which, in turn, may be bulbous or completely lack a bulb. If you’ve never looked at it before, you might look at this page:
The “about” pages on the www.amanitaceae.org (WAO) begin with
and include the above mentioned page,
and a few others.
If you start with the Amanitaceae page, you’ll find that a lot of the technical terms are defined in the text so you don’t have to keep jumping to a glossary.
spec had a full volva… this was after a flood and those spots are there they
appears to have been red or pink
It’s important to take an old kitchen knife or some other implement and dig down carefully enough to get the whole bulb. Then at least one photo should show the bulb in side view. The stipe base and bulb (when there is one) are terribly important to being able to determine Amanita species by sight alone.
I see pinkish spots on the cap and lower stipe in some photos. Is that really there or my imagination?
If it’s really there, you might consider A. roseitincta, which occurs from Florida to Texas and up the Atlantic coast at least to southern New Jersey:
