Hello, Igor.

Is this species associated with Betula? If so, you might consider A. flavescens.

The cap color is quite distinct from that of the European collections of A. fulva that I have seen. Also, the marginal striations on the cap appear short compared with those of fulva.

You might wish to take a look here:



Very best,
