Would be interested in what conclusions might have been drawn from further study on this collection. The real Breckonii or another pretender?

Noah, you may have actually stumbled on to the elusive A. breckonii

The spores look more elliptic than most of the Amanita breckonii pretenders that have been offered in the past, and your spore measurements do fit into the range per the Thiers & Ammirati description. And according to Thiers, the original studied material was found under Monterey Pine. A tentative “Nice find!”.
Will add more data soon

The collection is back at Christian’s in Santa Cruz and he will measure more spores tonight and look for those clamps…
