did not seem rimmed enough for Amanita frostiana. I did not collect it.

That’s an interesting comparison, Herb.

The specimen seen in the linked observation (previous comment) has a basal collar that is less abrupt than frostiana I have found. Actually, I seem to recall some frostiana coming in during NEMF 2014 in Maine that had similar basal volvas.

Walt, given the confidence level of your proposal, I assume you didn’t determine whether the spores are amyloid.

generally shows a volval collar encircling the stipe base above the bulb.

I think the lines along cap margin, which are fairly indistinct, are the result of age/moisture-content affecting the way the cuticle adheres to the thin context along the cap margin. I have seen this with flavoconia.
