which can have a cap that is somewhat tannish or yellowish in the center. I’m inclined toward multisquamosa for this guy. I’ve been watching for Ron’s material from east Texas and must have missed this one when it was first posted.

and A. multisquamosa is also reported as having the “funnel” annulus. But the faint color of the cap (disc) appears to tend more toward yellow than tan or brown.
