A. rhopalopus. It tends to have a rather disordered veil and can have the stipe kicked off to one side (dog-legged) as in longipes. There are a lot of taxa with rooting bulbs in the sandy soils of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coastal plains.

How about an odor?

Here are some other sources:

It looks you might have cream-colored or yellow cream gills on your specimen. Is that correct.

Your photograph is very nice and you show that the volval material on the cap is disinclined to form warts and is flocculent. I agree that longipes is a possibility. Also, magniradix is more common in uplands (I think).

Very best,
