Hongo’s description …

Hongo’s description of A. citrina var. grisea is a very good match to this material. Note the dark, virgate cap; the yellowish universal veil; the yellow upper surface of the partial veil; the marginate bulb with limbate volval remains; and the habit of the fruiting body strongly suggesting the citrina-group.
