I changed the notes to reflect your comment about the morphology of the stipe base.

Nice pix!

The fact that the cap pigment is arranged in a manner suggestion radial hairs (“virgate”) is a good character for this species. There are few members of the Caesareae with such a fleshy cap in the eastern U.S. (This goes with the rather short marginal striations.) The partial veil turning gray is a good marker, too. There isn’t a true bulb in sect. Caesareae. Maybe it would be better to say that the volval sac is often proportionately quite short and is often split into multiple membranous limbs.

R.
