It always turns bright yellow a few minutes after damage.

This mushroom had a hard life.

I think the yellow staining is possibly the “yellowing syndrome” that I’ve seen in a number of species of Amanita from around the world.

For new readers, a description of the yellowing syndrome is on-line here:

Very best,
