There is a chance that this is rubescens var. alba.

At any rate is is a rubescent taxon and very probably not flavorubens. I am working on the rubescent group in Amanita sect.Validae at the moment with several colleagues. If you have a chance to dry such material in Mississippi, it is likely that it would be valuable to the above-mentioned research.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
