there will be correlations with morphology.

I believe there will be multiple flavoconias.

I’m not surprised this falls into Validae. I think that my initial examination of the thumbnail kinda tricked me… UV deposits are arranged along the somewhat abrupt upper basal bulb in a pattern that mimics the “pantheroid” volva. Second photo clearly shows a bulb lacking in structure and with yellow UV grainy patches.

Does molecular data suggest this splits far enough off flavoconia to support a species designation?

Unlikely to be A. frostiana.

Genetics suggest closest neighbor is A. flavipes from Asia. This species has been picked up in environmental sampling from Georgia to Michigan.

I have not yet

cap margin appears to be grooved. Did you consider A. frostiana?
