I looked again today, and there are a few sneaky white pines mixed in. Sometimes I find specimens that are obviously A. crenulata, sometimes they are variable, (white warts, pale yellow cap, or lack of champagne colored material on the bulb’s shoulder.) which confuses me. Thanks, gentlemen.

Must be oak or pine nearby.

The color of the volva on the cap and the smear of the same color on the top of the bulb is pretty much typical of crenulata. Some two-year-olds in NJ just were found by their Mom with this species. Luckily they had ingested nothing or a very little bit. They were put on an hourly watch by Poison Control, but they developed no symptoms.
