In the image with the underside of the cap showing, the partial veil looks more friable than membranous. The p.v. in cokeri is membranous with a thickened edge and with many fibrils connecting the underside of the skirt to the stipe. Check out the recent MO observations of A. polypyramis and this


I think you’ll find that the latter species is very similar to what you photographed.
