Try KOH on the cap if you find another

If it turns yellow, it will be A. bisporagera, if not, then something else.

After expending a little time writing this up as a “destroying angel”… [edit]

I finally became convinced that the bulb is marginate, not truly limbate as in section Phalloideae. This suggest that it might be close to A. citrina f. lavendula. In the original description, Coker emphasized the pale nature of the yellow in the cap. Does the bulb smell like radishes or potatoes? What trees were near the spot where it grew?
