Is that a partial veil in 46682?

The volval remains at the top of the bulb should be ocreate like the volval remains of A. pantherina. I can’t really tell from the photos. If that is a partial veil in 46682, there’s something else going on here. Could there be two different taxa? The unexpanded “button” suggests A. praecox. Both species occur under Hemlock early in the year. Both species occur in eastern PA, and both species occur in the Smokies. Eddee, you might be in the combined ranges of both species…and they fruit at the same time.

Very best,
