The large ringless pale capped

eastern NA pantheroid amanita is A. albocreata. However, with all the rain we’ve been having in this part of the world (presumably also in Mass) colors get washed out and rings get washed off stipes. So I’m wondering a bit if this sort of thing could have occurred with this mushroom.
