This is an eastern coastal plain species ranging from Florida and Gulf Coast to Connecticut (just found there in 2008). It looks a bit like a species of sect. Phalloideae, but it is more likely to belong with the limbate species of sect. Lepidella. Heather Hallen has demonstrated that it doesn’t contain amatoxins.
