Undescribed, section Xanthodermatei

IMO, an undescribed species in the toxic section Xanthodermatei. A young ring like that is typical of several related species, but is not often seen outside of the Xanthodermatei. Red droplets like that are seen more often in this group of Agaricus than in any other, even though the flesh normally does not stain red.

Couldn’t this be the same as obs 23838? The same kind of double-layered ring, same kind of thin dark fibrils on the cap, both presumably reddening..

I don’t recognize it as Agaricus haemorrhoidarius or silvaticus, though (wrong kind of ring and too tiny cap fibrils) – and I don’t beleive in pocillator either if this is the same species.

The red juice is something I have not seen before in Agaricus.
