rubescent taxon…

It certainly shows the staining that you’d expect. The yellow bits of volva around the edge of the skirt/ring also would support one of the three common rubescent taxa of eastern N. America. The bulb is also typical of the group: amerirubescens, rubescens var. alba, and flavorubens. The faintly striate cap margin is not a contradiction. The specimen is a bit weathered. Without microscopy, you may not be able to resolve this one to species because rain can wash out the cap pigment in (at least) flavorubens.

Very best,
