Recognized by sight: This is a member of section Vaginatae that has a weakly structured volva that becomes gray with age. Usually, in species of thie groups, the gills also become grayish with age. In the eastern U.S., this cap color suggests a possible determination as A. borealisorora (the northern sister). This group is poorly treated in the existing literature. There will be more available data when the new Amanitaceae web site is up and running. — R.
