I have seen examples of aestivalis that showed no obvious rubescence.

The things about this mushroom that I think weigh against aestivalis are:

Cap and annulus appear to be slightly yellow tinged (which could be the camera adding some color). Aestivalis, except for the rubescence and maybe a little color on the disc, is very white.

Specks of material clinging to the cap margin does not remind me of aestivalis.

Lack of reddish staining

Is the lack of reddish staining why A. aestivalis wasn’t suggested? And
are you guys interpreting the bulb to be somewhat violet?

Hi Eva.

A somewhat puzzling Amanita.

Here’s an example of A. lavendula that shows material hanging from the cap margin http://www.amanitaceae.org/... . I’m not confident enough to propose lavendula, but I think this species may deserve consideration here. Seems early for this type, though…?
