You are the coolest. Thank you for your continued participation on MO – I have learned so much watching you communicate with people all over the world and all the time with the same high level of interest and care. You are doing good work and we all appreciate it!

Because the elements of the volva in A. daucipes are oriented strongly perpendicularly…

to the surface of the cap, that species does not show matted hyphae running from the bases of warts out over the cap surface between those warts. The latter, however, is very typical of Amanita ravenelii.

If the first picture is examined at highest magnification (especially in the outermost half of the cap radius), hyphae spreading between warts can be easily seen.

Therefore, I believe that this material is probably Amanita ravenelii.

Very best,
