I did not know that Chlorophyllum olivieri stained safron. I believe you are right. Thank you.

The overall color of this example seems dingy, dingy scales pulling away from a dingy background. Second, if you imagine that ring continuing to be pulled apart, it would have to turn out double edged. The bottom edge is already formed and already tinged darker, not distinctly brown like C. Rachodes, but much the same dingy of the cap (like with Chlorophyllum olivieri).
The bulb doesn’t really show in any of these, so that’s no help.

Based on the overall dingy color and the highly probable double edged ring, I vote Chlorophyllum olivieri.

Do you remember or still have this to judge it’s overall color?
