with that bulbous base, close sac of a volva and pale annulus, phalloides is a best fit. brownish cap color is one phalloides possibility, and even a hollow stipe, although uncommon, has been observed before in this species.

I did not notice it, but I didn’t try. I may go back and check.

Often something that is beginning to decay would have some odor…

This didn’t smell like rotten honey or carrion (like A. phalloides)?
