but it looks like the annulus may show some gray on the underside, rather than the yellowish tone expected with citrina. Citrina has a smooth stipe, whereas the one seen here appears to have a textured stipe surface. Tulloss describes the volval material on the cap of porphyria,“The volva is present as rather large violaceous gray – brown to violaceous gray plaques.” That fits what I see in this specimen pretty well. Both Tulloss and Phillips give a rather wide range of colors for the cap of porphyria.

should have a darker brown/gray pileus and a gray annulus I believe. And scattered warts. Those sheet-like warts make me think A. citrina f lavendula or whatever you want to call it. It’s the most abundant Amanita in my area this time of year.
