Notes: A prettier specimen that I held on to but did not find myself.
Looked like your typical Amanita citrina, per what the experts in the Mycological Association of Washington teach. Smells like raw potato. Citrine yellow cap. Large bulbous volva, veil, white spores.
Discussions with Rod Tuloss (see similar observation w/o specimen: http://mushroomobserver.org/148971?q=1fnNT) revealed this is likely f. lavendula, which turns lavender in the winter.
