Thanks for the info, I’ll keep it in mind in the future.
Another thing about amanitas (in addition to having to excavate them like an archaeological object) is that they can be expanded “in captivity.” By wrapping damp (not soaking wet) paper towels (or similar material) around the base of the stem and standing the mushroom and its wrapping in a paper cup or drinking glass. Placing a tent of waxed paper over the contraption will retain some humidity and might reduce egg-laying by insects that would weaken the specimen or promoted decay.
By expanding a specimen in the lab, you can get to see characters that are not obvious in an immature specimen and even get a spore print.
The fruiting body was immature and alone, so I didn’t get any spores.
