A. ravenelii can have a bulb like this one (not commonly).

The volva makes me think of rhopalopus because of the fluffy texture. Unfortunately, we can’t see under the warts to see if there is a layer of cottony hyphae below the wart tops that we can see.

Yes, a little more age would probably make it clearer.

Very best,

what about A. ravenelii?

See http://mushroomobserver.org/106221?q=2aRxf

I understand this specimen is too young to make a confident ID.

I think the volva is too fluffy for coker.

With smooth bulb having some rings of volva around the top, this make me think of species in Bas’ stirps Rhopalopus.
