In the top photo the coarse reticulations appear to be visible. This feature seems difficult to see on the upturned mushroom.

I would call this bumpy, not wrinkled. True, the cap of B. nobilis is frequently wrinkled, uneven. I think the reticulation in this collection is very prominent along the entire length of stipe, which is uncharacteristic of B. nobilis.

Reminds me of obs 74507.

Caps in this present obs (186795) seem kinda wrinkled for nobilis. Although many examples of what I have called nobilis have slightly wrinkled cap surface, eg. obs 251028. One photo in NAB/BRB shows nobilis with wrinkled/pitted cap surface.
