I saw that in your notes, Jen.

There is a volva present, which was not noted in your notes.

Arora states in his pictorial key to gilled mushrooms (in Mushrooms Demystified, which is primarily fungi of the West Coast of the US) that this might be Cortinarius. But there is no cortina present, the gills don’t look it, and The Phillippines is not California. If spores were deep brown, it might be Coprinus, a much more widespread genus.

What we have is your note of “spore print brown.” Can you expand on that? Was the spore print yellow-brown, purple-brown, rusty-brown, reddish-brown?

There is an annulus. Parts of the white, fleshy annulus are still attached to the edges of the cap. Cortinarius does not have a white, fleshy annulus.

It can’t be Amanita. Spore print is brown

and cup at base of stipe indicate possible Amanita. Hope RET can look at this.

Cortinarius highly unlikely, Jen. Cortinarius would have brownish-copper gills, often with a cobwebby annulus (cortina), and no patches on the cap.
