I’ve found here in NE PA shows variable yellow tints on the gills and/or stipe. Sometimes the gills are quite pale.

..has a yellowish stipe and gills, perhaps it is Amanita arkansana.

I see a slight annulus..

I second Dave’s comment regarding absence of a ring.

aspect is the lack of a ring on the stalk. Maybe one got washed off or otherwise fell off? With a ring on the stalk, I’d call this one A. banningiana. If this type is truly ringless, then it likely belongs in Vaginatae.
