Found this cool little (very little!) Amanita while fleeing torrential rains, so the photos are unfortunately very rushed. I save and dried one specimen. If it’s not apparent from the photos, the caps are darker (deep yellow to light brown) over the disc and yellow toward the margin. There was a pervasive light olive-ish tint to both caps which I don’t think showed up very well. The cap margin was faintly striate. There might be some universal veil distributed over the caps as brownish patches near the disc. The annulus is thin and white with some yellow coloration possibly only along the edge. The stipe is smooth and flaring apically. The bulb appeared to be a slight enlarging of the stipe and stained brownish. Possibly only on the inside due to maggots?

it would be tough to tell given the poor photo quality. I will send you the dried specimen, Dr. Tulloss, so that hopefully some useful data can be extracted.
I think the brown in the stem is due to decay of the material left by the larvae as you suggested.
It does look like there is something like volval material left on the cap.
I’m no help on this one.
