I meant Amanita abrupta Peck
Looks reasonable for this species which is often diminutive.
Probably, Amanita sect. Amanita. The bulb and the rim of volva (rolled-sock type) suggest a species in the pantherinoid or gemmatoid group. The two pallid pantherinoid species in the northeastern US are both know for having a partial veil that is stretched upward (rather than outward) by the expanding cap. That doesn’t seem to be the case in John’s picture. Hence, my guess would be something gemmatoid. We really need to know more about this group world wide, and it’s still not clear exactly how many taxa we’re dealing with in the eastern U.S.
