Just did some searching and discovered that A. longipes is called The flat-footed Amanita. The portion of the stipe below the bulb appears to been be flattened.
firmly formed warts on the pileus of longipes.
Other options for Phil’s region would be Amanita onusta and A. rhopalopus. The former should have at least some recurved scales on, or rings of gray warts around, the top of the bulb. The latter would probably be more robust (in most cases).
Phil, if you run into another specimen like this, I’d be grateful if you could dry it and send it to me.
