Recognized by sight: Non-appendiculate, strongly striate margins in the presence of a robust saccate volva eliminates amanitas from subgenus Lepidella. This leaves sections Vaginatae and Caesareae in subgenus Amanita; it’s know clear whether the material in the middle of the stipe is a true annulus or just peeling due to a cracked stipe.

Ring or no ring

I cannot tell to a certainty from the picture if this is actually a ring. I think it’s not, hence my choice is sect. Vaginatae. If it’s a ring after all, then its’ sect. Caesareae.
