The silvery white color makes one want to say “muscaria var. alba” (“chrysoblema”); however, the distribution of the volva on the lower stipe and bulb is scant compared to what would be expected in a muscarioid Amanita.

It would be good to have more information.

I think it is not too risky to suggest Amanita sect. Amanita.

I wish I could see the shape of the longer lamellulae (short gills).

Very best,


Very best,
