pics 1-8 are A. ocreata

You might have some ocreata in there

Pics 1 – 8 look like Amanita ocreata and pics 9 – 14 look like Amanita velosa. In pics 1 – 8, the cap margin is not striate, it appears to have an annulus or remains of an annulus, and the base of the stem looks like it might be bulbous. It would help if you could peel away the volva to see if the stem itself is actually bulbous.
