You’re absolutely right. I’ve been staring at the textbook examples too long I guess :)

Ignoring the color part, isn’t the /shape/ unusual as well? I’ve never seen one bell shaped like that either in person or in photos.

at the very least…

collect it next time and look under the scope. if it IS phalloides, it would be nice to have this material vouchered somewhere, as an unusual color variant…

I have seen brownish phalloides, but never a mahogany brown before!

I’m not surprised

that people feel this ID is wrong.
It’s an oddball and worth questioning.
I have seen the brown ones in this spot for a couple of years. They have a greenish sheen to the cap when young and age brownish in cold weather. This photo shows the darkest one of the group, but other observation from the same cemetery show brown colors.

It’s mighty dark brown for phalloides isn’t it?
