I think that my field guess at this species was Amanita cacaina.

The dark chocolate ringless Amanita was found twice on a single foray in West Virginia many years ago. I hope the specimen will yield informative DNA. It was pretty wet and already deteriorating at the point that the identifiers started documenting it.

Very best,
