Thanks for your comments. There was indeed a pale decoration in the form of zig-zagged lines. It does not show prominently in my photos, but perhaps you can see hints of it.
I didn’t know what this mushroom was when I saw it, but the ID was easy because the book I had at hand (something from 30+ years ago) had only A. crocea in it! Now I’m looking at flavescens and subnudipes, but crocea still seems a better bet.
Sorry I couldn’t preserve these. The visit to the place in the mountains was just for one day, with no real time for mushrooms, and the day after I was flying back to the US.
Before I saw Tatiana’s comments, I was about to raise the same questions.
I don’t see the yellow zebroid pattern characteristic for Amanita crocea.
Could it be that it is not A. crocea in the strict sense, but A. flavescens or A. subnudipes? In our area A. flavescens grows with birch.
