Seems it is now known that A. ceciliae of Europe is like this, but not the same species, thus the borealisorora prov. name.
Meanwhile, I guess eating it isn’t a good idea since I have yet to find a way to definitively conclude its identity. To me the area of a slight possibility of it being something other than borealisorora is not having a cup to look at. Maybe there are other areas of concern?
Is there anything else I could have done w/my photographs to make it even easier to ID?
Lastly, http://www.amanitaceae.org/?Amanita+borealisorora says it tastes nutty. I wonder about that. This one, raw, tastes a bit salty/umami (reminds me of the taste of a raw/steamed/microwaved A. amerirubescens), but not even slightly nutty that I can tell. Cooked I’d be surprised if it turns nutty, though maybe it would if sauteed, though just cooking it in butter at the right temperature and length of time would add the nutty taste, too (due to how butter can turn nutty in flavor). Hum….
