I’m almost afraid to post another yellow Amanita, but I’m afraid I was just dismissing most of these as the same species… This photo is kinda nice, so here is another one…

I’d check the spore dimensions and Q value. I really can’t be sure how much orange is in the cap in your photographs. I think A. flavoconia is probable; however, when the cap gets really yellow, it is worth checking A. elongata Peck as an alternative diagnosis.

Very best,
