I have some contradictory thoughts here.

The cap margin is not striate, and the volva on the stipe’s bulb is causing splitting because of isolated warts rather than a smooth bulb with a rolled-sock volva. Did you check for amyloidity of the spores? The species looks a lot like A. canescens specimens that we have been seeing in NJ this year. I have never seen as much canescens as we have in the last few years.
