Well photographed.

Looking at my own photos of solaniolens and porphyria types, the deposits on the stipe seem to favor porphyria. Solaniolens seems to feature a mainly smooth stipe. But I’d expect to see gray on the annulus of a mature porphyria, which appears to not be the case here.

This is the only one I saw with veil remnants on the cap

for the short time I was there. For the record, it was on the ground of Bok Tower, which is on one of the few ‘big’ hills or ridges in Central Florida.

The virgate cap might be helpful in determination.

If it is something with a name, then it could be in the lavendula-porphyria group. Perhaps A. solaniolens (although the cap color doesn’t seem right in my experience).

On the other hand, it might not be described….

Very best,
