I think the volva on the cap has been affected by environmental conditions…

perhaps there was very dry weather that altered the form of the warts.

The stem is very reminiscent of A. cinereopannosa while the cap gives the impression of A. onusta. The latter has been reported from Canada. I don’t think that cinereopannosa has been. At least at present, I don’t think that A. cinereoconia has been reported as far north as your collecting area.

The gills seem to be yellowish or becoming yellowish. If the gills rapidly become yellow and seem to be decaying while the rest of the fruiting body is simply mature (not decaying), then this could indicate that onusta is the best choice for an ID.

Very best,

Rod

What was the approximate diameter of the cap?

Is the whole bulb in the picture that is in side view?

Very best,

Rod
