A. daucipes features a rooting bulb, as the name suggests. The specimen in this observation clearly doesn’t possess this morphological character.

of the uncut specimen, you can see white fibrils on the what appears to be the cap surface between warts. That is actually the base layer of a complex volva. The only eastern North American lepidella with this type of volva is Amanita ravenelii.
