I’ve come back to these images several times.

The gills are whiter than those of subsolitaria. The universal veil on the cap seems to be mostly flocculent. If others agree, then I think that A. longipes should be considered as a possibility.

I realize that the bulb is not at an angle to the stem (dog-legged) as is often seen in A. longipes; however, I have seen specimens of A. longipes in which the bulb and stem had a common centerline. The species is plausible in Georgia. I remember dealing with a specimen from Birmingham, Alabama in the past. (I think it might have been collected by Dr. David Jenkins.)

Very best,
