Hello, Tim.

Thanks for calling my attention to this post. Yes, I would be interested in seeing the material as you offered.

The lamellulae are rounded attenuate which suggests that there is a chance that the spores amyloid. A pigmented virgate pileus and a distinct bulb without an apparent volval limb might then suggest section Validae, but of course I’m an outlander…

I don’t have a more definite suggestion at the moment.

Very nice pictures. I think that that’s a sterile margin on the cap rather than a pefect curtain of partial or universal veil. Sterile margins occur in Amanita; so that could be what I’m looking at in your pictures.

I hope your season turns out well.

Very best,
