Stipe is cylindrical, white, with double ring (or ring and volva?). No particular smell, in small dispersed group.

Found on grassland (freshly cut) bordering the pathway in between two agricultural field, in plain sunlight. Geneva suburbs, rural area, close to a protected wetlands of Meyrin.

With this description I thought of European white egg (Amanita ovoidea), a.k.a. Bearded Amanita or European Egg Amidella, but the habitat where I found it was confusing...
