Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

The annulus on the example on the left of the second image is much higher up on the stem than the others I’ve seen so far, and seemed more solid and less like tissue (as Arora describes it). Nonetheless, all of the other characteristics seem to fit so I’m tentatively concluding that annulus placement and consistency may not be as diagnostic as on, say, Amanitas. The spore print was brown, by the way.
