Because of the rings of volva on the stipe base,…

this is probably not A. rubescens var. alba.

I see that the volval fragments on the underside of skirt-like ring are very pale orangish white. This is typical of young material of A. canescens in my experience. You might check to see if the fibers on the stipe will change to a color in the pink-orange-yellow range when bruised gently. If so, this would be added support for identification of the collection as A. canescens.

Very best,
