Recognized by sight: Gills seem pinkish; skirt-like ring; other parts white.

Recognized by sight: Skirt-like annulus and white gills, even without volval patches, more likely to be Amanita, I think. I don’t see much of a volva, but it could be sheath-like.

Clues against Amanita

- innately fibrillose pileus, uplifted fiber-scales near cap margin
- DISTINCTLY free gills… Amanita on the west coast often have adnexed or only obscurely free gills

Also, as Twizzler mentioned, the pinkish cast is a good mark.

binding duff and no trace of UV remnants anywhere. Gills look pinkish. If they’re still there I could swing by for another look tomorrow and see if another specimen exists and has matured further, and what its gill color is.
