I checked Bon and Courtecuisse and the descriptions match.
No 100% certainty though.
Uploaded high resolution pictures. The volva is interesting.

If it really is A. eliae then congratulations!
This species is very rare and was long considered doubtful. I found it once in Czech Republic not still a bit unsure about true ID.

The specimen was found along a path in an oak forest.

I will reload higher definition pictures as it seems to be the first observation on MO.
