could this be roseolescens?

I see pinkish tones. That bright yellow in one of your photos may be due to an apparently widespread condition found in lepidella amanitas which RET has been calling “yellowing syndrome.” He sees it in eastern NA populations, and I have seen it in western ones. And maybe it occurs in South Africa, too!
