Did this species have a sack-like volva at the bottom of the stem?

For amanitas, it is very important to dig up the whole base of the stem.

If this species had a sack-like volva at the bottom of the stem, then the striate cap margin and the gray partial veil suggest that the species is in Amanita section Caesareae.

It’s a little slender for Amanita spreta; but, if it’s not that species, then its an unnamed species….which is possible.

Very best,
