looks distinctly ‘erupting’ from a Cystoderma – scaly stipe.
This is just weird environmental/developmental cracking

how can whe be certain it not a squamanita?

Marginate gills and much grayness definitely look good for A. protecta. Rather far north, however!

With all the gray and the rusty bulb…
