I believe this could be a good example of Hypomyces as well.

One species of white Hypomyces is noted for growing on Amanita specifically.

The fruiting body looks like it has had a rough life.

It’s still interesting. Might be worth measuring the spores and looking for clamps on the basidia near the cap margin end of the gills.
