Recognized by sight: one of the gemmata/pantherina group. That amanita is rotting, and any awful smell is possible. Tree roots can extend for a very long way. Our non-MR amanitas are restricted to the Lepidella group, at least in our current knowledge base.

I will check the spot again today to see what the closest trees are.

Trees can be up to 20 or more meters away from where you found the mushroom.

Were there any trees with a few tens of meters distance?

Very best,
