If this is a Limacella, then it is in section Amanitellae and can’t be…

A. glischra, which is in the Lubricae and doesn’t have a membranous partial veil. It would also have colored gluten on the stipe below the weak annular zone. If this mushroom belongs in the Amanitaceae then it could also be an Amanita with a graying partial veil such as porphyria; however, the specimen looks like it is old (blackening) is not typical of amanitas that are in good condition. Even in senility, blackening is rather rare…perhaps in a very rare, overwintered specimen that some how dried in situ. I think this particular lady is in distress if she is an amanita or limacella.

Very best,
