Having second second thoughts…

I thought about the smoothness of the cap.

But striations are apt to be hidden in buttons. I see this in some types of Amanitas. I’m still wondering… Gill attachment for Bolbitius is not described as truly free.

Bolbitius was my first thought too

What first gave it away was the perfectly smooth cap of the young fb.

If not for the gills…

appearing to be broadly attached to the stipe, I would have thought “Bolbitius” for this obs.
