Actually, while universal veil (volva) material is missing from the cap, there are limbs of volval material visible in the picture that shows the bulb in the foreground. Note that several flaps (limbs) of the universal veil are attached at the top of the bulb and free from the stipe. This is typical of gemmatoid taxa. The cap color goes well with at least one of the taxa that has been called gemmata in the Pacific coastal U.S. states. I think your own inclinations were as good as you can do without microscopy.
