I suspected they were A. phalloides, and yes, they are fruiting right now. It is always better to hear it from an expert. Thank you Rod.

The rain certainly didn’t help you by splashing dirt up on the stem and gills.

I think I see a partial veil on the stem. The younger cap despite loss of pigment (rain or sunlight) shows a virgate pigment patter in several areas with an impression of somewhat dingy, greenish yellow. The cap margin is not striate. The basal bulb bears a limbate volva.

Would Amanita phalloides be fruiting at this time of year in Portugal? We are to your south (hence, probably more slow to produce phalloides). We should be seeing phalloides (which is a European import to New Jersey) in about two weeks (more or less).

Very best,
