Not bisporigera

Jay Justice had a look at it and there were two indications (I forget which ones) that told him it was not bisporigera. The veil was just detaching, so it could have had a ring.

I think I see a ring.

But the bulb appears to have a point on the bottom and certainly seems to have an upstanding free limb of volva. I think it is possible that this is Amanita elliptosperma. It is known to occur in the Carolinas.
