The button was nearby, I believe within 10 to 15’, so at the time, I associated the two. Not only is there a well defined volval sac on the button, the veil looks like is will come off cleanly and not break up into the bits we see on the top two photos. Photo #3 was taken in direct sequence after #1 and #2, so I am fairly sure it is the underside of same.

I like the comparison with this Observation:

show the same mushroom? The photos of the mature mushroom look like Amanita borealisorora, also called A. cecilia, except I can’t see if the base has the typically gray remnants of volval material. The thickly striate cap margin and the gray patches scattered on the cap remind me of this type.

But the button seen in the bottom photo has a well defined volval sac that I do not associate with the cecilia types.
