Collection location: Fulton Co., Georgia, USA [Click for map]
Note the upturned annulus.
The habitat, viscid pileus, bulbous base of stipe, striated cap margin, and the color of the pileus all point to something in the A. pantherina group.

The specimen is dried now but I would say 3-4 inches when fresh.
How broad was the cap?
I accidentally destroyed the rings around the base of the stipe when I collected this specimen, this guy was growing in the same place as my last observation of this species.
Sure does have the infundibuliform volva (love that word).
The volva doesn’t seem to have the typical pantherinoid “rolled sock” form…or am I not seeing this correctly?
Check it out, I finally found a specimen with an upturned annulus!!!
Many of the specimens I found on my last observation of this species had there annulus washed away from heavy rains, so it was nice to find a pristine specimen with the annulus displayed in the upturned position.
