Found in Zone 13. White free gills and striate cap suggests possibly Amanita, but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.

has a lot of broad-leaf trees, yes, though pines are also present, and I think balsam fir.

Zone 13 has some grass in it, but is still a forest habitat. The path this was by is open, getting a lot of sunlight, so grass and wildflowers not seen in deeper woods are seen along this path. The mushroom might therefore also be associated with either habitat.

it’s growing in a grassy area. Compare with observations 23581 and 23123. These are ringless Amanitas that seem to favor lawns.
