No specimen available

This mushroom seems uncommon in the Upper Midwest. It fruited in the same location (just one specimen that time) a few years ago. At first glance, immature specimens can easily pass for an Amanita right down to the pieces of velar material atop the sticky caps. But no annulus. And once they mature, the gills blush a bright salmon pink.
