i keyed it out in my mind as one between A.umbrinolutea and A.battarrae so i set it as A.battarrae because of the orange spotted volva. they teached me that A.battarrae grows mainly under broadleaves trees so i archived this as A.battarrae back then although i think it is more a northern species.but also the edge of the cap is not that striate ,the color is brown and probably the gills edge are not dark colored.anyway i set A.battarrae as"could be" because it didn’t convince me.While A.fulvoides is a more intriguing hypothesis , although it is not a commonly known species and i’ve seen it only on books, the habitat(and the habitus) should be right. i hope to see it again ,in 2014 it didn’t fruit in that place.

See original plate of battarrae (which is the lectotype).

Amanita battarrae is described as gray; it is drawn as multizonate.

So battarrae doesn’t seem to apply to this material.

Very best,
