there will be correlations with morphology.
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?
Genetics suggest closest neighbor is A. flavipes from Asia. This species has been picked up in environmental sampling from Georgia to Michigan.
Still trying to get everything cataloged and Ill go back though.
cap margin appears to be grooved. Did you consider A. frostiana?
