Is that a red staining reaction on the stem?

If not, this could be Amanita maryalicea nom. prov.


If that is a red staining reaction, the most probable ID would be Amanita rubescens var. alba Coker.


and there is a very poorly known species described from Florida that is supposed to be white with red staining….

Amanita maculans


The latter has rather small and nearly globose spores. Dr. Jenkins told me once that it grew behind his mother’s house in Florida. I have never seen it.
