this is just a wrinkly capped edulis, right down to that yellow edge to the cap!
wrinkles happen, and not just on our faces!

The Thiers original description as well as the microfiche photo, shows a cap for mottiae with distinctive RAISED dark reticulations and a very different, lighter background color.
