You could add one more photo if you have the inclination…a picture of the two-spored basidia. The two sterigmata look like a rabbit’s ears to me. The character is very distinctive; and, so far, none of the new found destroying angels in the eastern U.S. are two-spored. So you can eliminate all of them… when you see the rabbit’s ears.
