about striated cap margin, Michael.

also I agree with Ron it’s more like franchetii.

Looks like A. franchetii,

and they are pretty common right now in the Bay Area.

Not A. Calyptroderma

Although I have collected A. Calyptroderma in this site, they have been long gone, and there were other specimen of this type around; all of which were lacking the cap like veil. Once again, there also was no sac. Additionally, the A. Calyptrodermas that I have collected have had well defined striates on the cap.

Did you peel away the volva eventually?

Because if the shaft of the stipe, minus the volva, remains straight and firm and butter-colored right to the bottom… it could be A. calyptroderma. They don’t always keep the cap-like veil remnant on top in my experience, it can come off.

The butter-colored stipe, at least as it appears in these photos, the ring, and the pileus color all look like they COULD be calyptroderma to me. But only if the stipe has no firm bulb under the volva.

Not Floccularia

The stipe looks similar, but the prominent ring near the cap and the volva at the base point to Amanita.

It did not have the type of veil remnants as Amanita Franchetii should. Also it did not have a sac like volva; instead it was more collar like
