It’s been a dry season here

Maybe it was a bit on the dry side? It was a very foggy morning, but no real rain for weeks. I feel like it was a fresh specimen; probably would have been perfect the day before I found it. I’m inclined to think that it’s edible, though I would not attempt to determine that on my own.

Looks like it could be a species of Amanita sect. Vaginatae

with some sort of raised dots on the surface of the cap. Dew?
