Recognized by sight: My suggestion of a name is based on the geography, the pallidity of the cap, the time of year, etc. See if you can find this species after a night when the temp. falls into the 30’s (F) — not too much above 0 degr. C. In the past it has seemed to me that this condition is one that often triggers a truly lavender reaction in the fruiting body. See my notes on this taxon on the Amanita Studies website.
