reminds me a of a specimen I found in South Carolina:

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita%20sp-amerirubescens01 <—EDITED

The species appears to be distinguishable genetically. I haven’t found it very often; and, apparently, it doesn’t always have a yellow bottom to the annulus.

A very interesting set of images.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
