Unexpanded cap

showed tightly arranged marginal striations, as expected for a Grisette. Volval sac mostly fell apart, but I did manage to dig up some of it that clung to the stipe base (from bottom to about 2 cm up the stipe).

found two specimens just like these, they’re def. not Amanitas.
It had a sort of ridgy cap, yes?
