Interesting picture, Drew.
Can you dry material from the observation?
We are trying to decide how many (if more than one), white, muscaria-like taxa that we have in the northern tier states of the U.S. and southern Canada. The lack of knowledge on this point is holding up our having a name for the dominant muscarioid taxon in North America (the one that is red in the west and yellow/orange/yellow-and-red-orange in the east. We know that this entity has a variant that lacks pigment. The questions is “Are there two taxa that look like muscaria and lack pigment?”
Your material might be a help to us.
We need material that is documented by good photographs and by well-dried specimens. We would use such material for both morphological and DNA study of the organism(s).
If you would like to participate in attacking the problem described above, I’d like to communicate with you about it. You can contact me via the email feature on MO.
