My initial guess is A. praecox -

because it is ringless, has a striated margin, and a similar looking bulb (with a second, inner layer of voval material on the lower stipe). However, what throws me off is that it is reportedly found “nearly always” with Canadian Hemlock – which I don’t think grows in Florida (although this one was found on the border of Georgia). I don’t recall what trees were exactly nearby, except that it was in a hardwood/conifer forest.
