I think this is probably in the Phalloideae.

I have seen a pinkish tint to the center of the cap in that section in what I thought, at the time, was bisporigera. The same tint is sometimes reported from ocreata in California. Chinese mycologists have recently named a species base predominantly on genetic differences that sometimes has pink on the otherwise white cap. I’m inclined to think that we have been applying the name bisporigera to several species that would could separate with some effort.

Very best,

Rod
