gills

Would be nice to see a good photo of the gills too.

I didn't take one..

They were white, crowded (didn't check if they were free or not).

Anything in particular you would be looking for when checking the gills for this genus?

What I aught to do, and haven't done yet, is look at some of the microscopic characters.

sure

I feel better when agreeing if I can see all the main features of a fungi before I agree that was the only reason.I know that may sound a bit daft but I just like to be sure

Doesn't sound daft

Just means you strive for thoroughness, rather than accept things at face value. I was just wondering if there was a character I was unaware of.

I'm going looking for a.virosa soon ~ and at the back of my mind I'm wondering if there is anything other than the slightly mishapen look of the angel, that splits it from a.phalloides var alba.

chemicals

There good to have and you can buy a range of chemicals from the association for British fungi .I joined them and the chemicals can be used on quite a few fungi,you also get a quarterly magazine and they have a forum with lots of help available with identifications and you always get a response too.
