Is this too similar to A. constricta or A. vaginata to differentiate without clear photos of the volva and a cross section? or is microscopy required to confirm species?

I wouldn’t imagine this is the European species Zaca mentioned, but I would also like to hear what Dr. Tulloss has to say.

Amanita sect. Vaginatae clearly.

Note that I know nothing about North American Amanita spp., the expert is Dr. Tulloss, but this specimen looks very much like ones that I had collected and used to classify as A. mairei. Maybe Dr. Tulloss can say something about this similarity.
