Recognized by sight: I’m wondering if these may feature well-buried volval sacs. Otherwise, these look like something from section Amidella.

Considering the position of the little “button,”…

I think that Eduardo got very close to the base of the larger mushroom. Unfortunately, the picture showing the gills is over-exposed. I cannot see if the edges of the gills are decorated. If this were to be an Amanita, then my vote would be for section Lepidella because the short gills are not truncate. They are very frequently truncate in section Amidella. (Amidella is one of the sections in which the rule “amyloid spores imply attenuate short gills” fails. A number of toxic species in the Phalloideae also break the rule.

Very best,
