Just to record a thought that was in off-line emails concerning this observation…

What about a species of section Amidella? Maybe a honkin’ big specimen of Amanita peckiana? Bob pointed out off-line that it looks like there might be a large robust limbus internus inside the volval limb. This is certainly not a character of A. bisporigera. Amanita peckiana comes to mind because Kauffman (in the protolog, if I remember correctly) mentions that the bottom of the stem in A. peckiana often splits near the stem base in such a way as to create the appearance of a substancial inner limb of the volval sac.

Definitely the heaviest and the most pigmented one I’ve ever found!

Thazza biggun!
