After reading up a bit on these I’d lean to A. multisquamosa due to the smaller size. These were considerably smaller than typical A. velatipes. At least from what I’m reading.
This is a characteristic of two eastern North American taxa with a pantherinoid bulb and volval material encircling the base of the stem (top of the bulb): I think this material is most like Amanita velatipes. The other named species is A. multisquamosa.
