It could be a white specimen of phalloides.

The cap would not turn yellow or yellow-orange after applications of 5-10% KOH solution if the mushroom is phalloides. If you do get a yellow or yellow-orange color on the cap from KOH, then A. virosa, A. verna,and A. porrinensis are possible. The latter could be based on a parasitized or otherwise distorted specimen of A. verna.




Very best,
