Spotting

Description:

White agaric, some 7 to 8 cm tall, with convex white cap, about 5 cm in diameter, with edges covered by partial cottony remains of white veil. Gills are white, tight and not of the same length. Stipe is cylindrical, white, with double ring (or ring and volva?). No particular smell, in small dispersed group.

Habitat:

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.

Notes:

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...
