Observation 61851: Amanita nothofagi G. Stev.
When: 2011-01-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This is from the exact same location as this observation,
http://mushroomobserver.org/31745?q=3FDG
I suspected it to be A. karea but have made some spore measurements, the shape and size are a much better match with A. nothofagi.

Here are the measurements in face view, the spores are globose to broadly ellipsoid and are too large to be A. karea.

The two images of the young specimen show the same specimen after one days growth.
