Unfortunately, I’m sorry to report, the mushroom had entirely decayed.
Apparently, it had not dried thoroughly.
To thoroughly dry a Lepidella it is often necessary to separate the cap and stem, cut the stem longitudinally into pieces (at least two) and cut the cap into “pie slices” (at least four).
When the mushroom appears dry, a check that nothing (nothing at all) is flexible is a very valuable step to take.
This sort of thing happens. Chalk it up to experience.
Thank you for your continued efforts and your interesting MO posts.
I think that this amanita probably belongs to Bas’ subsect. Solitariae.
The shape of the bulb is reminiscent of the bulbs of several species in that group. The densely floccose universal veil is also a good clue.
Without microscopic data, I’m probably missing some key data.
Your photographs are very good at catching all that “fluffy stuff.”
