It looks to me as though this species has a double partial veil… EDITED

with 2 skirts joined at their margins. [<<—-EDITED]

This is a character of two North American species of section Lepidella: A. cokeri and A. subcokeri. Since this one has no sign of pink staining on the stipe’s bulb, this could be the true cokeri. At the depicted state of development cokeri would have no odor; however, subcokeri would have developed its unique odor (to me it is a mixture of an old cedar chest and caramelized sugar).

A bunch of data about the two species can be found on these two pages:

Very best,
