Amanita alobcreata may occur in June with Canadian Hemlock or other conifers in the NE US and SE Canada. It has a pantherina-like bulb, a stem that always lacks any trace of a partial veil, and a white, markedly striate cap with a yellowish or yellowish tan cener. I think you’ve got it. The first photo is a classic albocreata cap.
