i do not remember much.
this photo was taken over a year ago and i failed to take notes.
the photos provided are all that i have.
the mentioned Amanita cinereopannosa looks promising.

the little piles of sand

The little piles of sand on the tops of the warts were slightly disconcerting at first. Gray somewhat formless (not conical or pyramidal) suggests Amanita cinereopannosa, but I usually depend on a few other clues in recognizing that species. Did you notice an odor? Did you happen to get a photograph strictly of the unearthed bulb? The upper part of the bulb in cinereopannosa often suggests a stone or block wall to me. I associate the odor of biscuit dough (probably my mother making biscuits from BisQuick mix when I was a kid) with cinereopannosa.

I don’t feel confident about an ID here.
