Thanks for your thoughts about this observation. Unfortunately, the materials are not available. Mark
Try holding the stem (not hard, firmly holding) for a minute or so. Then check in a few minutes to see if surface fibrils have become any of the following yellow, yellow-orange, orange-pink, golden, etc. It’s hard to identify buttons, but these might be Amanita canescens, which seems to be more common in recent years than the literature would suggest.
