Amanita russuloides is very similar to sp-S01 as far as one can tell from the original description, which is brief.

Amanita multisquamosa is very rarely yellow over the disc…in my experience, exclusively brown or pale brown. It is an eastern taxon described by Peck from NY with a range possibly extending from Quebec to the Gulf Coast.

The pantherinoid bulb is indeed distinctive.

After examining the photographs, I felt that I could not place a name on the mushroom with any certainty.

At first glance I suggested Amanita multisquamosa or Amanita russuloides. KOH test was not performed. There was a very prominent collar (like A. pantherina) at base. Gills were not snow white on any specimens (as in A praecox).

If this was near Tsuga canadensis (hemlock), then it might be…

Amanita praecox Y. Lamoureux nom. prov. which is common at this time of year in NE hardwood-hemlock forests.

If in a pine-oak habitat, then an early sp-S01 is a possibility.

In either case, a species of sect. Amanita.
