I don’t collect specimens, but I guess I should take this.
The ring on the stem gives me a problem. It looks like A. lividopallescens with the ring. I saw on the internet A. lividopallescens with some ring-like mark near the stem, but not like this.

Hello, Bojan.

This specimen seems to have a stipe without a bulb at its base.

If this is correct, it looks very much like a very pallid specimen belonging in section Caesareae. I am not aware of such a taxon in Europe. I would be very interested to know from European folks monitoring mushroomobserver if they recognize this species.

If dried material can be obtained of this taxon, there is a research program currently underway in North America that would greatly benefit from having a collection of such dried material.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
