Then I’ll propose Amanita spreta. It can be white at first and develops the color seen in your photo. It also has proportionately short marginal striations as does your imaged mushroom. Amanita spreta has a ring on the stem that usually becomes gray with age. Compared to other large North American taxa in section Caesareae it has a proportionately small volval sack.

Very best,

Rod

It was pouring rain that day and the ring was gone but laying on the ground underneath all broken up. I could not tell the color but it was larger. The young ones were white then becomming a gray brown.

Ring on the stem?

John,

Did the big guy have a ring on the stem? Maybe one that was gray or turning gray?

And…am I interpreting things correctly…the young ones are white before the cap becomes brown?

Very best,

Rod
